Bureaucratic for the People

2 Episodes

The System got you down? Commiserate with two hard-hitting looks at the soul-crushing frustrations of trying to succeed in the face of unfeeling bureaucracy and endless red tape. First, a man’s inability to renew his car’s registration spirals into an absurdist pileup of indignities in Georgi M. Unkovski’s subtly surreal short STICKER. Its hapless hero’s struggles are not far removed from those faced by the protagonist of Ken Loach’s SORRY WE MISSED YOU, a heartrending humanist drama in which a man’s journey through the modern-day gig economy pushes him and his family to the economic edge.
