WANTED deals with people’s classification based on outward appearance. The subject matter is indeed a timely one, nowadays masked behind the cover of technology as it is. WANTED is based on the archival materials of the Uppsala Institute for racial biology (Uppsala University, Sweden) – a department which was to be subsequently closed down in the 1960s. Today – in this very building – research into genetic manipulation is being conducted by dissecting DNA.

New Restored Digital Master
The new 4K/DCP restoration with 5.1 surround sound has been digitized by the National Audiovisual Institute (KAVI) from 35mm film print and supported by the Finnish Film Foundation (material support). Restoration post-production by James Post and Meguru.
