“The Last Waltz” is an animation on unemployment, life as a theatre and work as a stage where the life is played. The contradictoral meanings between the stage and the auditorium are the symbols presenting the society and it’s duality. During the early 70s´ the author Eeva Rista photographed black&white stills in various working locations around Finland. In those days the per cent of the official unempolyment was only 2%.
