Director Suzanne Crocker can’t be reached on a whim to discuss the screening of her documentary “All the Time in the World,” which will show for free on Wednesday evening at Little Beach Park in Minturn. Crocker lives in the Yukon Wilderness in Alaska.
“No Internet access and no phone until Aug. 31,” says her email auto-reply. “Sorry for the inconvenience. Suzanne.”
Her deflection of the barrage of technological communication the rest of us are subject to on a daily basis encompasses the theme of her documentary, which follows a family of five in search of a new perspective as they abandon the comforts of home to live remotely in the Yukon Wilderness.
RECONNECTING WITH NATURE
“All the Time in the World” was filmed off the grid, without external crew, to explore the theme of disconnecting from our hectic and technology-laden lives in order to reconnect with one another, ourselves and our natural environment.
The documentary will screen at 8:15 p.m. on Wednesday at the Little Beach Park in Minturn. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. There will be $2 beer from Crazy Mountain Brewing Co., and attendees are encouraged to dress warmly and bring blankets, pillows, food, chairs and flashlights.
Runtime for the documentary is 52 minutes, and it is appropriate for all ages. Crocker, who is elusive on email, will be on hand to introduce the documentary, discuss the making of the film and answer any questions the audience might have.
“I think, at some point or another, we’ve all wanted to turn off our cellphones, give away our computers and go be in nature,” said Tracey Flower, the Vail Symposium’s executive director. “The film does a tremendous job of exploring just what that experience is like.”
Armed with cardboard signs, and their voices, students around the valley walked out of school on Friday to join hundreds of thousands of their peers to demand action on global climate change.
