New York, Aug 30 (Canadian-Media): Directed and produced by Yang Sun & S. Leo Chiang, the award winning documentary, 'Our Time Machine' would be showcased September 11 over 35 virtual cinemas across the United States of America, media reports said.
Winner of the Best Cinematography Award at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival, the film recounts personal and intimate story of 43-year-old Chinese artist Maleonn (Ma Liang) presents an ambitious performance piece about time and memory when his father, the former artistic director of the Shanghai Chinese Opera Theater, is diagnosed with dementia.
Maleonn's hope that his presentation will unite them artistically and personally is shattered as time goes on, and his father's condition deteriorates.
The film is a meditation on art as we experience first hand Maelonn’s creative process, when he finds himself torn between the original goal to honor his father and the pressure of finding commercial success.
A personal touch is added to the film, which revolves around the themes of love and loss, the protagonist feels when he sees his father struggling with Alzheimers disease and becomes more aware of life’s complexities.
For anyone who has a loved one battling dementia and alzheimer's, this story will hit close to home. The filmmakers have crafted a loving look at the lengths loved ones go to care for those diagnosed with the disease.
