Dirs. Yang Sun, S. Leo Chiang. China/USA, 2019, 81 mins. In Chinese (Mandarin) with English subtitles. Shaken by the news of his father’s dementia, artist Maleonn creates the stage play “Papa’s Time Machine,” a wondrous time-travel adventure performed with life-size mechanical puppets. Through the production, Maleonn confronts his own mortality, finding grace and unexpected joy. Yang Sun and S. Leo Chiang’s documentary is a moving meditation on art, the agonies of love and loss, and the circle of life. A Passion River Films release. View trailer.

“S. Leo Chiang and Yang Sun’s vibrant documentary about this labor of love proves to be a multi-layered metaphor of the interplay of art, memory, loss, and reconciliation.”The Boston Globe
