World Premiere of Kafkaesque Comedy THE CORNER OFFICE With Jon Hamm. Filmed in Vancouver.

Kafkaesque comedy The Corner Office with Jonn Hamm as rigid, mustachioed office worker Orson, had its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Thursday, June 9th.

You work for the Authority in a towering, concrete office building. You’re proud of what you do, you know how to dress appropriately and how to behave – but why don’t your co-workers? Why doesn’t Rakesh stick to his side of the desk? Why does Shannon bother you with her incompetence?

Imagine the relief you feel when you find a beautiful, empty corner office. It’s just your style: with its teak and soft earthy tones that stand in stark juxtaposition to the harsh overhead lighting and office landscape where the others dwell, you can finally do your best work and escape the rabble around you. But why is everyone complaining about you and your impeccable work ethic to the boss? Why would they be so worried about you and your prized corner office?
