WHAT’S THE TIME IN YOUR WORLD?
“Delicate, understated…a subtle and unconventional romance.”
— Elizabeth Kerr, Hollywood Reporter
Interesting meditation on the nature of the past - perhaps the present is a convenient mask of the fact that ourselves are not actually present, but a manifestation of the past made flesh. We are nothing but what we have already been. --Tom Sheridan

« The jury appreciated the well structured, intense narrative, and the complexity of the story. We discovered more than just simple storytelling but also the creative use of formalistic devices and arrangement of time and space.
We all agreed that there appeared many love stories in film history but it was
great to see this unusual variation presented by remarkable performances ».
