Unrest | Cyril Schäublin | 2022 | 93 minutes

New technologies are transforming a 19th-century watchmaking town in Switzerland. Josephine, a young factory worker, produces the unrest wheel, swinging in the heart of the mechanical watch. Exposed to new ways of organizing money, time and labour, she gets involved with the local movement of the anarchist watchmakers, where she meets Russian traveler Pyotr Kropotkin. (KimStim)

“Cyril Schäublin’s intellectually ticklish, formally daring delight marks him out as a singular new filmmaking talent.” Jessica Kiang, Variety

“Schäublin’s visual style has no precedent and is unlikely to inspire imitators, so singular is its compositional oddity.” James Quandt, Artforum
