I'm Not Here
A film about shop assistants and boredom, inspired by a letter Sir Alec Guinness sent to The Times in 1970.
Comedy 1994 14 mins
In January 1970 the actor Sir Alec Guinness wrote a letter to The Times complaining about the lack of attention shop assistants gave to customers. The letter was printed under the heading ‘I’m Not Here’. Using that story as its inspiration, this film about shop assistants and boredom wittily combines extracts from a Harrods' training video and original footage from 'Miss London Stores 1970'.
