Happy Worker

The Happy Worker or How Work Was Sabotaged

Finland, Norway | 2022 | 79 min. | G

Watch trailer

Burnout, endless meetings and colourful Post-It notes with empty marketing phrases have hijacked meaningful work. How did we get here? Based on a sabotage manual developed during World War II, John Webster’s wildly entertaining and deeply upsetting film demonstrates how modern work has become a monster that devours itself – and everyone else around it. Without losing sight of the system’s human toll, the film speaks directly to a current agenda about how and how much we should actually work. And fortunately for all of us, there actually is a solution. Most people will no doubt be able to relate to much of The Happy Worker, and have a good, much-needed laugh about how it got this far.
