Time Is Art (2015)
Begins 7:30pm
Tampa Theatre
SyncLife1320 presents this free networking reception and screening of this documentary, which follows an aspiring writer who is compelled to make sense of the mysterious and powerful energy she felt at her aunt’s deathbed. A series of strange coincidences leads her on an exploration of synchronicity, the concept that everything is interconnected, and that time is not so much a chronology as it is an infinite cycle. She treads the fine line between nervous breakdown and ecstatic revelation as she seeks out guides in her search for answers. Together, they explore a reality where time is transformed from a unit that can be measured and commodified to an experience of oneness with the universe. Time Is Art (2015)
