AROUND THE CLOCK IN 60 MINUTES
3 – 2 – 1 and GO and suddenly you are after it, the Duracell rabbit. Henceforth, and with time on your tail you two rush from one stage of life to the next, from one tea party to the other. And the clock never stops ticking. And unmistakably the sound of carpe diem drones on.
But what does it actually look like? Time. What is its scent. What is its taste. What are its hobbies. Witty and charming, MILLION MILES shines the spotlight on the known-unknown. A pink rabbit turned placeholder-human and an actress as its companion. Together, they chase through space and time in a wild parcours – Peculiar characters cross their path – boredom grasps here, there and everywhere with its tentacles, the heartbeat is sped up in time lapse and death waves behind the home stretch. The objects turn into contemporary witnesses and we learn that the present has been proven to last only three seconds.
Suddenly, painful truths and amusing half truths orbit the same universe within 60 minutes: time.
