Our Time Machine

Directed by Yang Sun and S. Leo Chiang

When influential Chinese artist Maleonn realizes that his father Ma Ke, an accomplished Peking Opera director, is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, he invites his father to collaborate on his most ambitious project to date: a haunting, magical, autobiographical stage performance featuring life-size mechanical puppets called “Papa’s Time Machine.” Through the creation of this play, the two men confront their mortality before time runs out and memories are lost forever.

Three-time PAAFF alumni S. Leo Chiang expected in attendance for a post-film Q&A.
