Anti Social Worker
1 x 60'
Anti Social Worker is a character driven documentary that focuses on those who work in London overnight during the anti social hours of 9pm until 6am. With the economic downturn and the ever-increasing cost of living in the capital, many workers are turning to night shifts and alternative work schedules to make ends meet and sustain careers. The film follows five characters and their journeys as they begin their working day when the sun goes down, and carry through until dawn breaks. Cutting between the different stories, the film ties the narratives together around one place, mixing some harsh realities of working in the shadows of the great city with the fresh perspective of the ‘beauty of peace’ found in the usual chaotic urban density. The film gives voice to the unheard stories of the night, forgotten workers who keep the city going until the ‘normal’ working day ahead.
