Film Description

Jane Arden and Jack Bond produced three of Britain’s most challenging and provocative films – Separation (Jack Bond, 1967), The Other Side of the Underneath (Jane Arden, 1972) and Anti-Clock (Arden/Bond, 1979) – all of which were lost for decades. Now rediscovered, they reveal themselves to be essential works from the recent history of British cinema.

A complex avant-garde examination of time and personality based on Jane Arden’s extraordinary writings on the limitations of rational thought, Anti-Clock mixes sees Arden and Bond mix cinema and video techniques to create a movie that captures the anxiety and sense of danger that has infiltrated the consciousness of so many people in western society. By doing so they create a densely woven, dreamlike narrative exploring issues of personal identity and social conformity.
