Lost in Oslo.

by Andrew MacGregor

KLP: “Stories” - 60s

This sombre outing from Norwegian pension fund KLP draws attention to the plight of public sector workers during lockdown. As “smouldering uncertainty” grips the capital, nurse Line Fleischer, doctor Lene Finnestad, and kindergarten manager Frode Thorjussen share their thoughts on an increasingly unrecognisable world.

Filmed from afar by director Christian Holm-Glad, the trio offer a candid insight into their professional lives - most notably Fleischer, who admits infection may be inevitable and that she must “try to hold out as long as I can”. Others, like Thorjussen, are simply trying to process life on hold.

Something like pensions, therefore, may not be at the forefront of people’s minds right now. However, with this grounded black-and-white film, the advertised scheme promise to help those focused on the present feel better about the future.
