El Empleo (The Employment)

This animated film about a world where people have odd but vital jobs is striking, to say the least. The simplicity of the scenarios and the unsaid movements show a too different, yet very familiar, world.

While I wonder whether it has an allegorical meaning, I am nevertheless moved. Oh, the drab, tiring 9-5 world, where you sometimes have to be a doormat to someone higher up.
