Celebrated director Godfrey Reggio returns after ten years with a new experimental film unlike any other from his already daring career: a bardic fairy tale about the end of the world and the beginning of a new one, tinged with apocalyptic comedy, rapturous cinematography, unforgettable vistas, and the innocence and hopes of a new generation. Featuring an electrifying score composed by Reggio’s longtime collaborator Philip Glass with additional vocals from Sussan Deyhim and co-directed by veteran editor and filmmaker Jon Kane, ONCE WITHIN A TIME is the indie revelation of the year.

“Both technical feat and techno-pessimist fable, this strange brew brims with apocalyptic unease.” ~ William Repass, Slant

“Outrageously funny. Mesmerizing and provocative to behold while transcending beyond words.” ~ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru

“Once Within A Time” is the product of a ferociously creative hive mind, at whose apex sits an Old Testament prophet furiously warning us of the apocalypse at hand.” ~Ty Burr, Ty Burr’s Watch List
