Time Goes By Like a Roaring Lion
Die Zeit vergeht wie ein brüllender Löwe/Time Goes By Like a Roaring Lion
Documentary, Germany, 2013, DCP
According to Heidegger, time should be grasped in and of itself as the unity of the three dimensions of future, past and present. For humans, the time where past, future and present take shape mentally is the age of four; this is the time of telling stories and being understood. Photos of memories, photos of life that feel like a dream awaken chronophobia, a phobia mentally diagnosed as worrying about the passage of time. The only thing that happens in this film is time. However, there are spaces in the world where time doesn’t matter, like the panoramic images of a salt desert in Bolivia that correlates time with space. A philosophical essay about the importance of time.
