Clockwatchers' is a remake of the same titled movie from the 90's by Jill Sprecher, taking a surreal turn. The 3d animated movie follows a character who starts working as an assistant at a bleak company called "Global Credit" where she experiences the repercussions of meritocratic wage-based labour dynamics and the commodification of time, set in motion with Descartes' Enlighment Philosophy where the split between culture and nature determines work itself.
The movie's protagonists ask themselves how to feel at home in a world shaped by Capitalism with it's unrelenting credo "I work, therefore I am" and considers only what can be measured. When things at the office mysteriously start to go missing, the protagonist's body similarly starts to disintegrate, haunted, transformed and liberated by another body of nature.
The movie deals with the dynamics of technological and natural actors and how they reshape our understanding of identity, hybridity, and freedom.
The movie was developed in collaboration with Callum Ross.
