Aurora

Davids fulgerDavid til NettsidenA film which highlights the importance of meaningful work for some of society’s most vulnerable people. 

Aurora Verksted is an arts and crafts workshop which employs 60 people, many of whom are disabled or suffer from mental illness.  The managers work hard to open their colleagues’ eyes to their own potential, and together produce pottery, jewellery and textiles.  The film follows two new employees as their creative talents are discovered.  As a backdrop to their stories, the company has reached a turning point: rather than rely on dwindling Council funding, they want to quadruple the commercial revenue by opening a shop in the centre of Oslo.  Gunhild Asting’s film is a charming yet hard-hitting story of transformation. It is a call to action to redefine the potential of the disabled workforce and rethink the limited opportunities available to them on the job market today.
