SHORT FILMS 39: Buying Time

A dark and sinister auctioneer sells the promise of time and money - here in the shape of a decorative antique clock running madly backwards. A cast of desperate characters, including an out-of-place innocent is among the bidders. This film, directed by award-winning commercials director Bruce Dowad, was part of the Sony 'Dreams' project showcased at last month's Cannes and was filmed on the 24P camera.
