IFI & UCD SCIENCE EXPRESSION FILM FESTIVAL: THE END OF TIME

Peter Mettler

Book Tickets

This screening is followed by a panel discussion with Peter Mettler, Professor Chris Bean, Dr. Ronan McNulty and Michael McDermott moderated by Una Mullally.

Working at the limits of what can easily be expressed, filmmaker Peter Mettler takes on the elusive subject of time. From the particle accelerator in Switzerland, where scientists seek to probe regions of time we cannot see, to lava flows in Hawaii which have overwhelmed all but one home on the south side of Bog Island; from disintegration of inner city Detriot, to a hindu funeral rite near the place of Buddha’s enlightenment, Mettler explores our perception of time. He dares to dream the movie of the future while also immersing us in the wonder of the everyday.

Presented in association with Le Cool.

114 minutes, Switzerland-Canada, 2012, Colour, D-Cinema
