Time after Time

Peter Lind / / 2023

An eight-year montage road movie on a road to nowhere, shot through the windshield of a car. The shortest film of the year, covering a time span of infinite repition.

A lot can happen in eight years. Nothing, too. But apparently something can also happen and nothing can happen at the same time. ‘Time After Time’ is the shortest film of the year. It’s also an eight-year road movie that barely moves. Told via stills taken through the wind screen of a car from roughly the same spot on the road, Peter Lind’s hypnotic film shows how one house disappears and a new one appears, while a mechanical narrator’s voice accompanies and time-stamps each frame, taking its viewer to a new land where time passes even as everything stands still.
