Sam Klemke's Time Machine
A Portrait of An Extraordinary Nobody
In 1977, teenager Sam Klemke began a project to obsessively film and narrate every year of his life in an attempt to understand himself. Also in 1977, NASA sent into space the Golden Record: an audio-visual self-portrait of humanity that would allow extra terrestrials to understand who we are. Sam Klemke's Time Machine moves us from the infinity of space to the raw intimacy of the life of an extraordinary nobody to look at what it means to be human.
Adelaide Film Festival is excited to welcome the filmmakers at this special screening.
