The Mass Of Men

An unemployed 55-year-old arrives 3 minutes late at a job centre. An advisor penalizes him for his tardiness. To avoid plunging further into destitution, Richard takes desperate measures. Inspired by the events surrounding the London Riots in 2011 and the infamous speech made by Prime Minister David Cameron, the film provides harsh insights into the dangers of repression, disillusionment and apathy.

Duration: 17 Min.
