Suicide Machine

This amazingly tactile, rather tense film depicts a machine which, by it's own movements is progressively destroying itself. As sand is slowly poured into the open gears the whole thing will gradually seize up and cease to work. There is something really quite disturbing about the total inevitability of this, particularly when the destruction is being carried out in such a tidy and methodical way. The metaphors are endless!
