TIME BEING

by Chris GALLAGHER
2000-2009 / 35mm / color / sound / 1S / 88' 00

Chris Gallagher's feature-length film essay Time Being is an elegant and
thought-provoking investigation of the nature and experience of time, and
its filmic representation. 88 one-minute shots or shot-sequences
counterpoint a spoken commentary that probes and questions the subject from
many different angles - psychological, philosophical, mechanical,
cosmological, artistic. Equally, Gallagher combines aspects of different
cinemas - documentary, structural, poetic, narrative, and personal -
skillfully interweaving all the elements into a complex yet coherent and
surprisingly moving statement on the human condition. The most brilliant
film on its subject I've ever seen, Time Being is cool and non-academic yet
deeply engaged, and beautifully shot. An educational film in the best sense. - Tony Reif
