Now & Then

Directed by: Angela Besharah
4 min, Canada
Using two distinct temporal spaces, this film explores the emotional disconnect through our attachment to technology that is rampant in this present age. The use of children in both time periods carefully and subtly contrasts the haunting reality of how we have become more preoccupied with our gadgetry and distractions than the living souls next to us. NOW & THEN is a film of quiet restraint whose message is more important now than ever before.
