Losing It

John Webster

Finland, 1998, 90 / 52 min.

After a few washes, missing socks is a common incident for most of us, but at the same time it is irrelevant and not worthy of any particular scrutiny. John Webster, however, is determinedly convinced of the importance of shedding light on this enigma, and “Losing” it not only engages the viewer to participate in an investigation of missing socks. The film also successfully combines the strategy applied to the investigation as a way of revealing the cause and effect that underlies the workings of the European Union – which for a detached spectator can seem entangled and abstract.
