When artist Maleonn realizes that his father suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, he creates “Papa’s Time Machine,” a magical, autobiographical stage performance featuring life-size mechanical puppets.Through the production of this play, the two men confront their mortality before time runs out and memories are lost forever. Official Selection, Tribeca Film Festival.

...a thought-provoking, melancholy portrait of creativity and growing up that’s hard to shake.
Scott Tobias, Variety
Sun and Chiang strike a tricky balance between a high-stakes making-of documentary and an intimate, observational family portrait, but Maleonn is such a thoughtful, sensitive, brilliant subject that the film is compelling no matter where on the creative spectrum they find him.
