Our Time Is Running Out
Current project status: COMPLETED
With ‘Our Time Is Running Out’, director Meriem Mesraoua creates a compelling and disturbingly blissful alternate universe in which a society of children lives according to strict and absolute rules. Every day, there are lessons and tasks – and every day, there is trepidation, for any deviation from the norm means eternal banishment. When one youngster wakes to find himself changed, he makes a desperate attempt to cling to the familiar. Time and life, however, march inexorably forward.
