Sam Klemke’s Time Machine

Here is the million views viral video of a man obsess with capturing time (in this case via filming himself) that launched it all and got the filmmakers interested in making the documentary “Sam Klemke’s Time Machine“. This is definitely NOT your typical doc and it is rather fascinating in its own way and can be rather reflective as you get to see someone’s life flies by in front of your eyes in the time of a movie.

Here are film reviews you may want to check out:
Variety “A unique docu hybrid that turns one man’s decades of self-filming into an existential message in a bottle”,
* THR “Habitual over-sharing on camera may have a longer history than you might think”,

You can stream the film on Kanopy for free (if your library like Calgary has subscribed to the service). And I think this is Sam’s own YouTube channel “MisterEsoteric” where you can watch more of his clips.
