The Hands of Time

Treacherous lovers get what they deserve in this noir split screen palindrome.

Director’s Statement

This film was inspired by the film noir genre of the late ’40s and ’50s popularized by works such as the Lady from Shanghai and The Maltese Falcon.

Borrowing the visual technique used by Michel Gondry, the film makes use of the split-screen palindrome narrative style to tell two sides of a story across the course of an afternoon and evening.

I was really lucky to be supported by a top notch crew and talent both onscreen and behind the camera. By being able to do this piece without outside interference and a supportive environment, I feel I was able to achieve what I set out to do and am proud of the result.

I hope it helps to carry the rich tradition of film noir into the 21st century.
