Speed: In Search of Lost Time (2012)

Not available in Germany

We don’t have time – even though we are saving it in abundance. This film explores one of the modern world’s great paradoxes and attempts to get to the bottom of its mysterious logic. Along the way, it tries to answer one of the fundamental questions of man: How do we want to live our lives?

Speeding up and boosting efficiency have become the dominant goals in almost all areas of life. But where does this need for speed come from? Who’s running this rat race? And where has all the time gone that we’ve saved over the last few decades with ever more sophisticated technology and efficiency models?

Cinematography is profound and makes some major points. Plenty to think about.

I'm glad Florian made this documentary, but wish he found the answer to his quest... I'm on a similar quest, and seem to have come up with the same conclusion...in that I haven't found a solution or a definite answer. Is there one?
