A SPACE IN TIME is a candid, lyrical, intimate portrait of one family’s struggle to understand disability after their two young children are diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and are forced to stay present amidst the challenges of building a new home.
This livestream will include an in-conversation with director/producer Nick Taussig, director/editor Riccardo Servini, Klara Taussig – mother to Oskar and Theo, Dr Jon Rey-Hastie who appears throughout the film – CEO of Pathfinders Neuromuscular Alliance and special guest host comedian and writer Francesca Martinez.
We love this unique insight into a family with two sons who have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy that seek to live in the present as the walls around them are physically and metaphorically taken down and equally, reconstructed. The film gives a nuanced perspective of disability and what home truly means.
"This film will undoubtedly break your heart with its harsher scenes but will leave you with a sense of hope and the power of resilience and commitment."
"Beautifully made and with heart-stopping moments, this is a lyrical window on the plight of the disabled. It is like a dose of medicine that most of us need, finally uplifting, and expanding our understanding of other peoples’ lives"
"This poignant documentary around two young brothers with Duchenne muscular dystrophy celebrates the power of love and togetherness"
