Vertiges (2014) [Short]

Canada (MIFF 2017 , Special Events)

Since the dawn of time, humans have been trying to seize, accelerate or stop time. But what is time, exactly? Vertiges weaves a fantastic playground where philosophical, scientific and artistic concepts of time are skillfully explored in a kind of temporal vertigo.

Through a fascinating narrative, documented and punctuated with stunning artistic contributions, time becomes a unique poetic, visual and musical experience in which directors Alexandre Burton and Jimmy Lakatos invite reflection, provoke discussion and raise interesting questions about our relationship to time.

Vertiges is produced by Montreal Space for Life’s Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium.
