An old man is fading in and out of his memories, and quietly contemplating how his life will end in assisted living care. Just as he begins to feel as though he has become a burden to his family, his young grandson comes to him.
'Metronome' is a postulative short film that pays attention to the passage and monotony of time at the end of our life. I was invited to contribute a film to the Remodernist feature collaboration 'In Passing.' This is the result.
It had its world premiere at Cinekinosis in Bristol, UK, and a North American premiere at the Quad Cinema in Manhattan as part of the International Film Festival Manhattan. It's also been invited to play at the Moscars Al-Hurria Film Festival in Cairo, Egypt, and the Short Circuit Fest in Bulgaria.
