Do I Love My Job? connects narratives about lives and work of two women welders from shipyards in Finland and Croatia. Their stories are in many aspects similar yet divergent due to socially, politically and economically different contexts. Both strong and passionate in their work, they reveal their personal experiences and takes on symbolic positions of women workers in dominant male working environments. Their dialogue is presented through textual, visual and audio components.
