Time stops when you hear this young Torontonian's disarmingly sparse gospel-soul songs. Even more stunning than the richness of her voice is the patience of her delivery. She’s not afraid to stand alone in unadorned space, an intense-but-reassuring presence that coaxes classic R&B into a zone of zero-gravity.

Filmed over 9 months, off the grid, without external crew, and featuring the unique perspectives of children, All The Time In The World explores the theme of disconnecting from our hectic and technology laden lives in order to reconnect with each other, ourselves and our natural environment – parents connecting with children, children connecting with nature.

Glen Campbell.  I'll Be Me

Watching this documentary was a moving and bitter sweet experience.  No one can escape the aging process and the vulnerability that comes with it.  In this case, viewers watch a legend hit with an Alzheimer’s diagnosis and the subsequent tour after the fact.  Aided with a teleprompter to remember his lyrics, Glen’s almost innate ability to play his guitar is amazing.  It is heartbreaking to see the effects of the disease take hold.  His daughter lamenting the day when her father will look at her and she will mean nothing to him.  What I really got from the documentary is what a good-natured man Glenn is.  His best line, “My father thought I was so bright, he called me son.”
