Oddball presents a program of rare and unique short films exploring the temporal dimensions of the outer and inner worlds.
The program includes The Story of Time (1949), a dazzling stop-motion short from the Rolex watch company, and Leisure (1976), Bruce Petty’s Oscar-winning animated history of time spent at play. Natural rhythm is explored in What Time Is Your Body? (1973), a fascinating study of biological clockwork using human isolation experiments, as well as in Maya Deren’s avant-garde ballet, Ritual in Transfigured Time (1946). Also, in Time Piece (1965), master puppeteer Jim H*nson crafts a zany self-portrait of a man in crisis. Finally, we close with Chris Marker’s seminal short film La Jetée (1962), a mind-bending reflection on time, memory, and man at the end of it all. It’s time to mind what makes you tick!
