Recalling the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and the late Chris Marker" (Hollywood Reporter), Peter Mettler’s enthralling new film combines elements of documentary, essay, and experimental cinema to create a tour de force that challenges our conception of time - and perhaps the very fabric of our existence.


With stunning cinematography and a knack for capturing astonishing moments, The End of Time travels the planet — from the CERN particle accelerator outside Geneva to the lava flows of Hawaii; from a disintegrating Detroit where Henry Ford built his first factory to the tree where Buddha was enlightened.  Both mind-expanding and eerily familiar, Mettler's provocative film explores the links between renewal and destruction, between primordial mysticism and the furthest reaches of modern science, giving the viewer a transcendent cinematic experience.

"A ravishingly beautiful experience… Immersive and hypnotic."- Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter


"One of Canada's great cinematic experimentalists returns with a documentary exploring the meaning of time...There is not a hint of the didactic here, but rather pure contemplation, much like Graham Coleman's 1979 masterpiece' Tibet: A Buddhist Trilogy', which also sought to introduce a timeless, meditative state for viewers." - The Globe and Mail
