Sam Klemke's Time Machine

Feature Documentary (in production)



For over 40 years Sam Klemke has obsessively filmed and narrated every aspect of his life. His epic home-movie project spans decades of intimately personal, as well as world history. We see Sam grow up on film from optimistic brace-toothed teen, to self-important 20 year old, into an obese, self-loathing 30-something and onwards into his philosophical 50’s. Family and pets die, plans and ambitions fade, love comes and goes and wars begin and end. Sam Klemke’s Time Machine is both a deeply personal and completely universal portrait of humanity, as seen through the narcissistic lens of a unique ‘time traveler’.
