Recalling the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and the late Chris Marker, Peter Mettler’s enthralling new film combines elements of documentary, essay, and experimental cinema to create a tour de force that challenges our conception of time – and perhaps the very fabric of our existence.

With stunning cinematography and a knack for capturing astonishing moments, The End of Time travels the planet – from the CERN particle accelerator outside Geneva to the lava flows of Hawaii; from a disintegrating Detroit where Henry Ford built his first factory to the tree where Buddha was enlightened.

Both mind-expanding and eerily familiar, Mettler's provocative film explores the links between renewal and destruction, between primordial mysticism and the furthest reaches of modern science, giving the viewer a transcendent cinematic experience.
