Details

Anti-Clock, Jane Arden and Jack Bond's last collaborative work, mixes pioneering video techniques with pin-sharp colour footage in order to create a densely woven, dream-like narrative which explores issues of personal identity and social conformity. Based on Jane Arden's extraordinary writings on the limitations of rational thought, this groundbreaking film has remained unseen since its last public screening in 1983 and is presented here in a new transfer from the original 16mm negative, along with a selection of never-before-seen special features. 'A complex and fascinating experimental exploration of time and identity. Anti-Clockis 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
