Review of “As We’re Told” (2017)

Moving picture, 28 minutes

Seen in 2019.

The Swedish Public Employment Service (Swedish: Arbetsförmedlingen) as a counter-productive bureaucracy. The script is pieced together from a sociological study of the Service itself, as described in a 2015 book by Roland Paulsen.

A puppet show with visible puppeteers, billed as a documentary. Cynical but well executed.
