Brilliantly atmospheric short film/longform advert from Epoch films, directed by Martin De Thurah, for BLK DNM clothing brand. Very cool, very stylish, referencing and evoking lots of very cool, very stylish films, most obviously, The Conversation, The Lives Of Others, Three Days Of The Condor and Rear Window. A full 15 minute version of the film can be found here.
