PROJECT INFO

Presented by Xstream Pictures (Beijing) and Huanxi Media Group Ltd. with Jia Zhang-ke as the producer, “Where Has Time Gone?” is an anthology feature film showing five segments directed by five directors from Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, exploring the theme of time and love through their own perspectives.

THEME

Caught in frenzied spiral of economic and social development, people are always trying to keep up and chase faster pace of life. It almost becomes an addition that real people and things around individuals are ignored. It is especially true in BRICS countries that are experiencing almost aggressive development where people constantly feel time has lost, hence raise the question “Where has time gone?”.
