In this funny yet thought provoking documentary we follow the worldwide Complaints Choir created by the Finnish artists Tellervo & Oliver Kalleinen. The film centers on a number of choir members during the making of Complaints Choirs in Chicago, Singapore and beyond.
While following the creation of the choir songs, consisting alone of the participants complaints, the film delves on the questions; what is complaining?
Why do so many people spend so much energy on it? Is it a basic manner of communication serving the purpose of emotional relief? And ultimately, what happens if people in a society are not at all allowed to complain?
