Dead the Ends

Directed by Benedict Seymour

  • United Kingdom 2017; 106 min
  • Original version: English
  • Genre: Experimental


After the 3rd World War and global uprising, a man is sent back in time to delete the time machine that has almost destroyed the planet. Can he remake his, and his species’, destiny, or is he stuck in a disastrous loop? Beginning and ending with the UK riots of 2011, the rest is history – but not as we know it. Dead the Ends explores the cultural retromania and riotous tensions of a system in deepening crisis, asking: how did we get here and how do we get out?
