Director Adriana L. Dutra discusses the time-and the lack of it – in documentary with interviews with thinkers, scientists and writers such as André Comte-Sponville, Domenico De Masi, Nélida Piñon and Marcelo Gleiser
"A film for anyone who has time, don't have time or don't know what to do with the time ", says Adriana L. Dutra on his documentary How long time has, that will be displayed in the 39th Edition of the International Film Festival of Sao Paulo, on 23 October, with special guests sitting in space film Ita, at 10:00 pm. The work, It continues the trilogy of documentaries authorial tone started with Smoking hope (2008), part of the show Brazil – featuring Brazilian titles unpublished in the city –, with views to the public at the Centro Cultural São Paulo (31/10) and in Cinesala (02/11).
In the long, Adriana investigates the main lines of our awareness of the time listening to philosophers, physicists, architects, neuroscientists, transhumanists and even a Buddhist nun to perform a deep reflection about the civilization and the future of human existence. The Director has already begun the research for the last production of the trilogy which will address the fear.
How long time has part of an internal conflict of the Director on the subject. "All live racing against time, with an intense routine appointments. We live in a different time. Run always, We run without reason, We run for nothing. It is as if time had been faster. Everything suggests speed, urgency, our lives are always tied to the duty of any task. So that now, After all, by that time seems so short?”, questions Adriana. Thus, through rich characters – among the interviewees are André Comte-Sponville, Domenico De Masi, Nélida Piñon and Marcelo Gleiser, among many others –, Adriana is a way of trying to explain the various human relations over time.
The documentary covers relations with new technologies and globalisation – which happens with a constant increase in production, growing and content and information simultaneously. Privacy sharing through social networks is also parsed: currently, via cell phones, computers, facebook, Twitter and conference calls, the identity multiplies and is present everywhere at the same time. The simple act of contemplating lost on the immense amount of incentives offered.
