The End of Time – Trailer

Peter Mettler’s first feature-length documentary since the Genie-winning “Gambling, Gods and LSD,” “The End of Time” begins with archival footage of US Air Force pilot Joe Kittiger, who flew a balloon to the unprecedented height of 102,800 feet, then parachutes out. Watching these images of Kittinger in free fall suspends our notion of time . The film argues that time itself is, in part, a notion we impose on ourselves–and that there may be other ways to view, measure and experience time than the Western artifices of the clock and the stock market bell.

The End of Time is playing in the festival circuit.
