“There’s Cyril Schäublin’s utterly singular ‘Unrest,’ a movie that is defiantly uncategorizable, unless you have a category earmarked “playful, otherworldly tales of watchmaking and anarchism in 1870s Switzerland.” - Jessica Kiang, The New York Times

New technologies are transforming a 19th-century watchmaking town in Switzerland. Josephine, a young factory worker, produces the unrest wheel, swinging in the heart of the mechanical watch. Exposed to new ways of organizing money, time and labour, she gets involved with the local movement of the anarchist watchmakers, where she meets Russian traveller Pyotr Kropotkin.

The second feature film from director Cyril Schäublin (“Those Who Are Fine”), Schäublin won Best Director in the Encounters section of Berlinale 2022.
