The Mass of Men
Gabriel Gauchet

  • Synopsis
  • Cast & Crew

Richard, an unemployed 55-year-old, arrives 3 minutes late for his appointment at a job centre. An advisor, stifled by the limits of the system in which she works, has no choice but to penalise him for his tardiness. To avoid plunging further into destitution, Richard takes desperate measures.

Inspired by the events surrounding the London Riots in 2011 and the subsequent infamous speech made by Prime Minister David Cameron, The Mass of Men gives harsh insight into the dangers of repression, disillusionment and apathy.

A Skillset Screen and Media Academy, the NFTS is the UKís leading centre for postgraduate and professional training in film and television, offering full-time MA and diploma courses in all the key film and television disciplines. Based in Beaconsfield, just outside London, the NFTS has its own purpose-built studios, including two film stages, a separate large television studio, and post-production facilities rivalling those of many professional companies. NFTS students learn from some of the most accomplished people working in film and TV today. Taking on their future professional roles from the outset, they learn their craft by making films and TV programmes, working to professional standards as closely as they can.
