With a video introduction by Cyril Schäublin 

Dir. Cyril Schäublin. 2022, Switzerland. 93 mins. DCP. With Alexei Evstratov, Clara Gostynski. Swiss filmmaker Schäublin has created a film about time itself: what it means historically, emotionally, mechanically. Set in the late 19th century in Saint-Imier in northwestern Switzerland, Unrest surveys a concatenation of photographers, cartographers, anarchists, and organizing employees at a watch factory, all of whom Schäublin dramatizes with prismatic elegance. Tying them together is the real historical figure of Pyotr Kropotkin, whose experience in Saint-Imier will inspire him to become an influential socialist philosopher. At once gratifyingly cerebral and fully immersive in the physical experiences of the town’s workers as they wrestle with the establishment of shared time itself (as leisure as well as work), Unrest is an entirely different kind of history piece, and it moves likes gorgeous clockwork. A KimStim release.
