Break Free

by Syd Briscoe

Short Films: “Jack's Poem” - 3 mins 06s

Actor Michael Kinsey stars in this poetry-focused short film, which delivers a manifesto about breaking the chains of the everyday working world with breakneck efficiency. Kinsey cuts an intense figure as he starts a rapid-fire spoken word performance right from the off - reflecting the relentless pace of the capitalist dystopia we find ourselves in.

Accompanying this railing against the system is a film which feels like one long, unbroken shot as he walks through city streets - deserted save for the symbolic actors he passes. Whether it's a desperately busy receptionist or a man trying to free himself from being literally tied to his job or, the message to prioritise doing what we love is abundantly clear... even if Kinsey ends up with a briefcase by the end.
