SYNOPSIS & REVIEWS:
Reality doesn't happen by itself. Terry Lothian works tirelessly to maintain the background details that we all take for granted. But with his department feeling the pinch of austerity cutbacks, it's not just the fabric of reality that's starting to unravel.
CLANKER MAN was commissioned by Talkies Community Cinema in association with Short Sighted Cinema for the HERE Film Festival 2017.
