Tergo cleans. He cleans up after you and me. He picks up the mess we discard but yet remains invisible to all around him. Tergo’s a lost soul in the London urban machine. He’s ready to leave the life he leads behind.
Tergo is the fifth short film from London film collective Pallas Pictures and their first to feature an entirely CG lead character. A labour of love and devotion by director and Pallas Pictures founder Charles Willcocks, it is the existential tale of a cleaning robot lost amongst the everyday drain of work in London. In a city of millions of strangers all living digital relationships, it’s a modern day fable for anybody who might be lonely and caught up in the rat race of life.
Sometimes to work out what is beautiful about life it can only be solved by someone who exists to work.
