Presented by filmmaker Suzanne Crocker with Q&A following the screening

Canadian filmmaker Suzanne Crocker spent nearly a year in a cabin in the wilds of the Yukon outback. She and her family lived off the land with the supplies they portaged from home—but there was no electricity, no internet, no phone, no running water. The aim of this demanding exercise was to restore a fuller sense of reality and familial connection, and Suzanne had the conviction that leaving everything behind was the only way. Crocker did bring her camera, and she documented their experiences on film—a surprisingly rich and often amusing chronicle of trial and error, happiness and distress, warmth and detachment. All the Time in the World is a fascinating record of a multi-layered experience, and as the family’s time in the wilderness began to wind down, they actually had second thoughts about returning to “civilization.” (Suzanne Crocker, 2014, 87 mn)
