Anti-Clock

Jane Arden and Jack Bond’s groundbreaking experimental film creates a densely woven, dreamlike narrative exploring personal identity and social conformity.

“A complex and fascinating experimental exploration of time and identity. Anti-Clock is a film of authentic, startling originality. Brilliantly mixing cinema and video techniques, Arden and Bond have created a movie that captures the anxiety and sense of danger that has infiltrated the consciousness of so many people in western society. Filled with high tension and high intelligence, Anti-Clock is mysterious, disturbing, fascinating and exciting.” Jack Kroll, Newsweek

“Anti-Clock… is great!” Andy Warhol
“A futuristic masterpiece” Claude Chabrol
