Our Time Machine + Q&A

Shaken by news of his father’s dementia, Chinese artist Maleonn sets off to build a time machine

“Captivating ... a complex emotional tug of the ties that bind.”Screen Daily

When artist Maleonn realises that his father suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, he creates “Papa’s Time Machine", a magical, autobiographical stage performance featuring life-size mechanical puppets.

Through the production of this play, the two men confront their mortality before time runs out and memories are lost forever.

Please join us after the film for a very special discussion with director S. Leo Chang in conversation with ABC Radio National's Beverly Wang.
