21:00 TONIGHT in Master Class: re-run of the first part of the trilogy of the proletariat by Aki Kaurismäki: Shadows in Paradise
“I don’t want anything from anyone. I’m Nikander. Ex-butcher, now a carbage truck driver. Bad teeth and stomach, liver is hanging on. More than I can say about my head. No use asking what I want. “
Connected organically to the classic works of Poetic Realism, Shadows in Paradise follows Nikander, a garbage man in his quest to live with dignity when life at the bottom of capitalist structures poses its challenges.
