The Waiting Room

UK, 1976 (MIFF 1978)

Director: Bob Kellett

A room: empty except for a chair and a clock on the wall. There is one other object in the room: a small wooden box on the floor beside the chair. A succession of people enter the room, each seeing and reacting to the things in the room according to his character or condition.
