Director Biography:
JUAN CARLOS OLLANA is a Spanish film director and producer. After graduating from Dramatic Arts School and a Master in Film Directing in 2012, he has produced and directed short films, documentaries, TV series, theatre plays and feature films. Among these, he is the Executive Producer of The Malevolent starring Mischa Barton (2016). 

Director Statement:
In its deceiving simplicity, Overtime reminds me of films like Duel, Night Watch and Funny Games. Despite all the action this is a character driven film - it is a classic genre piece that plays with all its possibilities. Underlying the strict genre structure is a strong commentary on today’s working conditions and social imbalance. The movie challenges us to reinvent ourselves when we find that we’re trapped in the mechanisms of profit and greed. We’re all mice in a wheel, or rats in a (cubicle) maze – unless we take charge of our destiny. Like the protagonist, we have a choice – fold and give up, or fight back and regain our dignity.
