As Slow As Possible
Film1/ASAP: As Slow As Possible is the first installment in a film series set to premiere in 02026 and conclude in 02640. The series will explore humanity’s relationship with the passage of time. As our modern way of life continues to accelerate at an exponential rate, slowness and long-term thinking become an act of resistance and even a means for survival. From the unhurried movements of Icelandic glaciers to a 639 year-long musical performance in Germany, stories of geological, human, and cosmic time intersect and take viewers on a journey guided by a more expansive definition of time.
With a project 600 years in the making, community-building and fundraising will play vital roles in our ability to sustain this endeavor long-term. This film is a journey – a long pursuit, not just for us as filmmakers, but we hope for our audience as well. In light of the community we are hoping to build and the subsequent dialogue around slowness and long-term thinking, we’d like to offer this moment as a springboard into our film’s world; an opportunity to exchange and engage with not just our project and where it stands now, but all the things we’ll encounter along the way.
