St. Jørgen’s Square

SaintJorgenIn this short but intimate documentary we meet Jørgen, who works in a remote storage facility at NRK, the Norwegian national broadcasting corporation. We get to know him by observing his daily routines and his interactions with fellow employees at NRK. This film touches on an important but disappearing factor of daily life in the workplace and governmental institutions; the care for the individual person.

A warm and touching film about seeing and the need to be seen.
