Waiting Is Irrelevant When Time Is Non-Linear (2010)
16mm film, HD, color
Time has played a intriguing part in the existence of this film, beyond its topic and title. Dormant for 6 years on a forgotten harddrive, not even the filmmaker Gina Hara remembered its existence. Maybe a school project, maybe a camera test? “Waiting Is Irrelevant When Time Is Non-Linear” is consistent with Hara’s experiments into exploring the boundaries of film as a medium. In this project Hara addresses questions around linear storytelling and the threshold between film and filmmaker. Without end credits the film almost seems to continue on beyond its limited time frame.
