Take It Slow

“Humanity’s fascination with time travel is age-old. From Ebenezer Scrooge to Marty McFly, the mere idea of spinning the clock back into the past, or forward into the future, has tempted us to infinity. Used as a cinematic device, whether in science fiction, thrillers, or comedies, time travel has the unique ability to help us explore the endless nature of our universe… and discover the very truth about what it means to be human.

“In this week’s Staff Pick Premiere, ‘A Single Life,’ the Dutch animation studio Job, Joris & Marieke puts its own unique twist on the time travel format, and in two short minutes delivers a playful and poignant tale about slowing down and appreciating life as it happens. The film, which received an Oscar® nomination for Best Animated Short, follows Pia as she listens to a mysterious vinyl record that allows her to jump through time and space over the course of a single song.”  —Vimeo
