16 September 2018 h. 18:30
If you could travel through time, where or when would you go? Would you revisit a fond memory from your childhood? Catch a glimpse of the future? How to Build a Time Machine follows two men, both of whom have set out on a quest to build their own time machines. Rob Niosi is a stop motion animator who has spent the last eleven years constructing a full-scale replica of the time machine prop from the1960 film adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novella, The Time Machine. Ron Mallett is a physicist from the University of Connecticut who was also inspired by H.G. Wells’ story. However, Ron’s machine isn’t a replica. Dr.Mallett believes he has figured out how to build a real, working time machine.

How to Build a Time Machine is a film about time travel. It’s a classic literary and cinematic story device that’s ripe with drama and fantasy, and poses some big moral and ethical questions. How to Build a Time Machine looks at cinema as a time machine. The way in which cinema captures images, creating a document of the past, which results in “ghosts” on the screen; actors who have since passed on who remain forever young on celluloid. Finally, How to Build a Time Machine is also about nostalgia and the dangers of living in a time other than your own. Wondering about the future and obsessing over the past will lead to missing out on the present. (Jay Cheel)
