The Watchmakers

2007

Duration 11 min 30 sec

The short film, The Watchmakers, has an elliptical structure. It is crafted to have a loop-like display, repeating a hold up scene at an out-of-date watchmakers store. Repeated robberies present the criminal as the victim, and the victim as a criminal who returns to the crime scene. The structure both complements and breaks the logical coherence of the story. The short film premiered at MUU Gallery in 2007 and was presented in Tracking Traces, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in 2009.
