The End Of Time (2013)
Starring: Peter Mettler,George Mikenberg,Freya Blekman,Claire Timlin,Federico Antinori
"Recalling the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and the late Chris Marker" (Hollywood Reporter), Peter Mettler's enthralling new film combines elements of documentary, essay, and experimental cinema to create a tour de force that challenges our conception of time - and perhaps the very fabric of our existence. With stunning cinematography and a knack for capturing astonishing moments, The End of Time travels the planet - from the CERN particle accelerator outside Geneva to the lava flows of Hawaii; from a disintegrating Detroit where Henry Ford built his first factory to the tree where Buddha was enlightened. Both mind-expanding and eerily familiar, Mettler's provocative film explores the links between renewal and destruction, between primordial mysticism and the furthest reaches of modern science, giving the viewer a transcendent cinematic experience.(c) First Run Features
Years ago, Medora was a booming rural community with prosperous farms, an automotive parts factory, a brick plant, and a thriving middle class. The factories have since closed, crippling Medora's economy and its pride. The population has slowly dwindled to around 500 people. Drug use is common, the school faces consolidation, and as one resident put it, "This town's on the ropes." Medora follows the down-but-not-out Medora Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of the 2011 season, capturing the players' stories both on and off the court. The Hornets were riding a brutal losing streak when we arrived, and the team's struggle to compete bears eerie resonances with the town's fight for survival. Medora is an in-depth, deeply personal look at small-town life, a thrilling, underdog basketball story, and an inspiring tale of a community refusing to give up hope despite the brutal odds stacked against them. On a grander scale, it's a film about America, and the thousands of small towns across the country facing the same fight. As one towns-person told us, "Once we lose these small towns, we can't get them back." (c) Official Site
