Summary Peter Mettler's enthralling, mind-bending new documentary is 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. " Mind-bending!" - Time Out New York. "A mesmerizing, poetic cinematic experience that is wholly unpredictable and endlessly satisfying." - This Week in New York. "Recalling the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and Chris Marker...The End of Time is a ravishingly beautiful experience, immersive and hypnotic." - The Hollywood Reporter. "Mettler is a deft director of photography...one image in particular, of a lava flow in Hawaii, is one of the most plainly gorgeous things I've seen on film all year." - Village Voice. "A form of cinematic meditation...powerful, moving and sensually ravishing to watch." - Toronto Star. System requirements: Adobe Flash Player.
