Life in the Factory Basement (2017)

Original title: Elu kombinaadi keldris

Documentary Duration 28:00

Life in the Factory Basement

The story of a person, the system that surrounds him and the communication between these two parameters. The protagonist of the film, an electrician Ago Pettai of a South-Estonian hospital represents a very healthy anarchic lifestyle in the general system and in the medical system, that part of the structure that gives the possibility for that kind of anarchy amid great illness. The film poses a question: What it means to be well and is a healthy mental outlook somehow connected with it all?
