8:30

A Film by Laura Nasmyth
and Philip Leitner

Synopsis

A group of door-to-door salesmen get a train to a mysterious suburb, one of which suddenly finds himself in what seems to be an infinite loop, as he continuously returns to the same train station over and over again. 8:30 is a satirical gag about urban dislocation, capitalism, and Google Street View, the weirdness of identikit suburbia, and the blurring of lines between reality and fiction in the digital age.
