'More of the Same Tomorrow' is an independent essay film spearheaded by filmmaker Ben Lankester and Swedish artist David Hedberg.
The film tells the story of a commuter’s desire to escape the routine and monotony of the everyday. Deciding to take time into his own hands, our hero begins a spiritual pilgrimage across a timeless city.
Attempting to bridge the gap between music video and short film, our aim was to tell a single story that would accompany the new five-song EP from East London musical collective Clapton Fox. What began as an idea to shoot a narrative video in the band's hometown of Warsaw quickly escalated into an experimental and frighteningly ambitious journey into the unknown. Filmed across a week in Warsaw in the middle of winter with an additional studio day back in London, 'More of the Same Tomorrow' emerged from the rubble of a true filmmaking odyssey.
Ultimately, what we hoped to create was an essay film on time and routine and progress and destiny, revealing the ever-present, all-destructive nature of the ticking clock, how it continues and passes by, how it is impossible to shed.
