SCHWARZARBEIT

Switzerland 2022 – Director: Ulrich Grossenbacher – Original language: English, French, German, Italian, Swiss German – Subtitles: English, German

They come in pairs, always unannounced, and they nearly always find what they are looking for: the labour inspectors in the canton of Bern on the hunt for workers that are illegally employed. Who are the victims and who are the villains? A film that takes a clear position and recounts its investigative search like a thriller. Ysabel Fantou
