OUR TIME MACHINE

Sumptuously filmed and warmly rendered, OUR TIME MACHINE is an exquisite story of a son's dedication. 43-year-old Maleonn is one of China’s most influential conceptual artists. His father, Ma Ke, was Artistic Director of Shanghai Chinese Opera Theater. Although the mysterious excitement of Ma Ke’s creative world inspired young Maleonn, his feelings were complicated. When Ma Ke is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Maleonn pours everything into an ambitious new project: “Papa’s Time Machine,” a visually stunning time-travel adventure told with human-sized puppets. At the play’s heart are autobiographical scenes inspired by Maleonn’s memories with his father. He hopes this will bring the them together artistically and personally. But there are no effortless masterpieces or simple solutions. A beautiful story, well told. (Best Documentary Cinematography, Tribeca)
