Canada, Switzerland | 2012 | Peter Mettler
This enthralling, transcendental new essay film traverses the globe to explore the nature of time. Moving from the giant particle accelerator outside Geneva to the lava flows of Hawaii, from decaying Detroit to the tree where Buddha found enlightenment, filmmaker Peter Mettler limns the links between destruction and renewal, mysticism and modern science. “[Recalls] the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and the late Chris Marker…Immersive and hypnotic…A ravishingly beautiful experience.” –Hollywood Reporter.
