"Lost Citizens" is a film about the precariousness and uncertainty of the job market in Sardinia (Italy), further aggravated by the recent economic crisis and by an incompetent and opportunistic industrial policy. The film looks at how different generations of people (fathers and sons) experience and face the brutality of losing their job, lay-off, wage guarantee fund, relying on seasonal work, and competing for the same job. The family reciprocity system has broken down, community support is weaker, and enterprise and state benefits have been progressively eroded. What is left is often a great sense of anxiety and dismay. In this context, the struggle is the only tools citizens have to claim their dignity and the right to work.
