A short dark comedy about the monotony of espionage. Created by
DIRTY WORK is a short film about Martin and Rhys, a pair of government investigators with distinctly different attitudes to investigating. Martin is a freelancer, an ex-special branch police officer with an axe to grind and a compulsive eating disorder. Rhys works for MI5. Cocky, ambitious, and with a few skeletons in his closet, he wants to climb the ladder all the way to the top. The film takes place over 24 hours as the pair tail a wanted fugitive who has evaded capture for many years. The only question is, are Martin and Rhys wily enough to finally bring him in? Focusing on the relationship between Martin and Rhys DIRTY WORK gives a voice to the people in dark suits who read our emails and tap our phones.
