Moments in Spacetime

Christopher Cowden
Canada, 2019, 113 min.


Macie (Patty Srisuwan), a Thai immigrant adopted into a North American family, must look after her dementia suffering grandfather (John Rhys-Davies). When she discovers that her birth mother may not have died in a tsunami fifteen years earlier, Macie teams up with her grandfather to discover the truth about her past in order to decide which family means the most to her.

Director's Statement

Moments in Spacetime is a film about two things that are dear to me: Language and Identity. We can’t express one without the other. It is language that allows us to share our identity and create connections with other people. And yet, it is the inadequacies of language that lead to misunderstandings and prevent us from ever fully knowing another person. This film aims to identify the bubble of language that separates us... and pop it. Leaving just human characters trying to connect with moments in spacetime.
