Second Class (2013)

11 Nov

Filmmakers: Marta Dauliute and Elisabeth Marjanovic ́ Cronvall

Sweden/Lithuania | 2013 | Documentary | 60 minutes

“Do you feel cheaper?” We are filming Lithuanian migrant working men in Sweden. They do not want to be on camera, they do not want to participate in creating one more media image for guilt and pity. They film us. We empty a bottle of moonshine, we dance on their porch. They might let us film them tomorrow.

Through sincere and frustrating negotiation to get access to film the migrant workers, Second Class becomes a discussion about class, the value of work and human. While showing the filming process film raises questions about power relations in film industry itself.
