WHITE MALE 40
An animated documentary series, a short film and an augmented reality experience by Malin Erixon. White men around the age of 40 discuss life and reveal how difficult it can be to see the privileged situation you are in. Satire and seriousness is mixed when documentary audio material meets fictional animated characters.
