THE FILMS

Sam Klemke's Time Machine (Matthew Bate | Australia | 94 min.)
In 1977, 17-year-old Sam Klemke - fascinated by film’s ability to capture time - began a project to record and narrate his entire life. With the passing of time, Klemke’s once youthful optimism sours, yet he continues to document each high and low. Through the nacho binge eating, broken hearts and failed dreams, Klemke creates a recording of his life that is brutally honest, narcissistic and touching. But now in his fifties and with a roomful of hundreds of hours of tape, what exactly has been the point of it all?

Matthew Bate’s (Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure) second feature is a time-capsule of a fascinating time in history connected through Klemke’s video diary entries. Fresh from its premiere at Sundance 2015, Sam Klemke’s Time Machine is a bizarre, free-wheeling and unclassifiable non-fiction portrait of an extra-ordinary nobody.

Midnight Three & Six (Joe Callander | USA | 12 min.)
Every night a mother wakes up at midnight, 3am, and 6am, so that her daughter will wake up in the morning.

MUSIC

Peace Arrow
When you've been dreaming of a peaceful, introspective moment to yourself, Peace Arrow has the accompanying soundtrack. You'll feel at home with the lyric-driven, holistic, and warm offering as if it were a venture into the woods to find wild berries on a bush.
