Nothing But Time
Jump through time with GOMA's new two-month film season.
June 06, 2019
Time is the one thing that no one ever has enough of. That's true in an ordinary day, if you're staring mortality in the face, or when you need to travel back to the past in a telephone booth — not just to round up historical figures so that you can pass high school, but to put you on the path to becoming a world-changing rock superstar. It's a topic that people can't stop pondering, including many a filmmaker. And, it's the subject of the Gallery of Modern Art's new film season, Nothing But Time.
For two months between Friday, July 5 and Sunday, September 1, GOMA's Australian Cinematheque is hoping you'll have time to stop by and check out its jam-packed lineup. From time travel classics, to tales of love battling against time, to explorations of memory, to contemplations of time's inescapable nature, there's plenty to watch. Hop in your DeLorean, wake from a dream within a dream within a dream, and take a giant leap over to South Bank, with the paid program running every Wednesday and Friday evening, plus Saturday and Sunday during the day.
It all begins with quite the double — and quite the treat on the big screen — aka Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Back to the Future. From there, you can revisit a heap recent-ish classics such as Inception, Run Lola Run, Primer, Edge of Tomorrow, 12 Monkeys, Only Lovers Left Alive and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind; enjoy the anime stylings of Your Name and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time; or soak up bona fide greats like Solaris, Ikiru, Wings of Desire, Wild Strawberries, Last Year at Marienbad and Cleo From 5 to 7.
Or, you can dance, magic, dance with David Bowie through Labyrinth, then walk and talk with Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy through Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight.
