A single glove in the street, a torn up love letter in a Metro carriage, a pair of shoes hanging from a telephone wire, a phone box that rings as you walk past…
You never see them, but you see their work. So subtle you might not even notice. Snags in the fabric of everyday life. Objects, moments, the seeds of stories, the odd little things you come across every day that make you think, what’s going on there…?
The Department of Distractions, an organisation so clandestine you won’t have heard of them. They say their job is to plant stories in the world “to make life more interesting.” Others would argue that their job is as much to stop us looking in certain directions. But things are starting to unravel, a story they started has got out of hand, they’ve lost control of it and now they’re in danger of being exposed. How far will they go to maintain their anonymity? How much are you willing to believe?
A conspiracy-theory documentary-exposé detective story for the 21st century that asks: what aren’t you looking at?
‘Clever, intriguing and original’
‘Fantastic and scarily believable’
Running time: Approx 80 mins
