Our Time Machine

Plays through Friday, September 25

100% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and 2019 Cinetopia Audience Favorite!

Shaken by the news of his father’s dementia, artist Maleonn creates “Papa’s Time Machine,” a wondrous time-travel adventure performed on stage with life-size mechanical puppets. Through the play’s production, he confronts his own mortality. Maleonn finds grace and unexpected joy in this moving meditation on art, the agonies of love and loss, and the circle of life.

In Chinese (Mandarin) with English subtitles

81 minutes. Documentary. NR.

Sun and Chiang’s ability to capture the theatrical wonder of Maleonn’s work helps introduce this extraordinary artist to the West, while the story of loss and the next generation rising is universal.

Documentary Magazine

Our Time Machine is a wondrous blend of beautiful puppet imagery and even more beautiful family drama… It’s one of the best films of the year.
