Description This article shows that unemployment and its consequences can be explained not only by statistics or studies such as "The Unemployed of Marienthal" (1933), but also by the "narrative elaboration of political themes" (Sandra Nuy) in films such as "Grapes of Wrath" (1940) or "I, Daniel Blake" (2006).
