by WRIGHT on 25 August 2021

Produced and directed by the collaborative group WRIGHT, made up of designers, filmmakers, writers, and musicians, Watch the World Go By analyses the importance of fashion and how it can serve as armour in everyday life. The film's protagonist Heritier, engages in a series of enlightening interactions with an array of idiosyncratic individuals, all purposefully steering him away from a life of grey mediocrity. Throughout this journey, his plain brown suit transforms as he collects the wisdom of these characters.
