ToldUntold #5 The Reference Man

Mr. P was offered a promotion in the factory, to become a foreman. He didn’t want to, but eventually circumstances led him to accept. The new job involved writing ‘posudky’, reports on his colleagues in communist style, about their behaviour and way of living. Still today, he rather not talk about this and finds it a strange and difficult subject. He was willing to talk to Brit Jensen anonymously and in this beautiful animation from Anne van Wieren you hear him telling his story.
