The Timekeepers of Eternity

The Timekeepers of Eternity

On a redeye flight between Boston to LA, a group of strangers awake to the surreal discovery that the plane's crew and passengers have disappeared. Those that remain force an emergency landing to a nearby airport and find an outside world devoid of all life. Tensions mount as this cosmic anomaly tests the sanity of the passengers. All the while an ominous sound draws closer, suggesting an impending doom.

Born from the Stephen King novella The Langoliers - which was adapted into a 1995 TV movie - animator Aristotelis Maragkos painstakingly printed every frame of the movie to paper, reshaping it through black and white collage animation. Surreal distortions and reconstructions manifest the drama as literal tears and crinkles at the frame. The result is a film that uses its own form not only to express its unnerving narrative but to magnify the performance of its cast, and remain a supremely entertaining masterstroke of remix art.
