Under the Fold

Bo Juhl Nielsen, Denmark, 2013

8 min.DK/Short fictionAnimation, Film school films

At the beginning of the Great Depression a middle aged, worn out industrial worker named Frank loses the stability in his and his son's life when he loses his job. Homeless, and with his boy Andrew in tow, he struggles to find a job in streets crowded with unemployed workers. Desperately he spends his last dollar buying a newspaper containing job adverts and he searches through the city for a job.
As Frank is continuously rejected in his search and slowly getting low on options, the optimism in him disappears. Slowly he forgets the positive aspects of life. At the same time his son is turning the situation into an innocent and imaginative game, and without knowing it, Andrew is the solution to his father's depression.
