USA, 1993
Length: 114'
Director: Ross McElwee

The death of a father and a grandmother, a marriage and the birth of a son. As McElwee observes, ‘everything begins and ends with family.’ And in the life of a family, as in everything else, it is those seemingly inconsequential moments that often turn out to be profoundly important, such as the moment when McElwee’s father picks up his son’s movie camera, and the moments when McElwee decides to put it down. Filled with black humor and deepest pathos, Time Indefinite is a magisterial chronicle of place and character, capturing the fullest range of human emotion.*
