2012, Peter Mettler, Canada/Switzerland, 114 min.

“Polished and spectacular…recalling the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog, and the late Chris Marker.”
—Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

“A ripping pool of sounds and images…splendiferously trippy.”
—Jason Anderson, Cinema-Scope Magazine

From the bowels of the world’s largest particle physics laboratory deep in a Swiss cavern to a Hawaiian mountain where lava creeps in fiery majesty to the tree where Buddha was enlightened, filmmaker Mettler (PICTURE OF LIGHT; GAMBLING, GODS AND LSD) explores the malleable concept of time. This spellbinding documentary is no scientific treatise but a wide-ranging, mind-bending meditation on the measurement and interpretation of time through the practices of many cultures and through nature’s own unalterable rhythms of decay and renewal.
