Director Richard Linklater has dedicated his career to exploring the relationship between time and film, and the impact of time on relationships, personalities, styles and cultures. His latest work, Boyhood (2014), goes to extremes in its exploration of the temporal in cinema: shot over the course of 11 years with the same cast, the film literally traces the development and ageing process of its characters. Linklater: On Cinema and Time is an exploration of the cinema of time and the history of cinema, matching an insightful interview with Linklater to illustrative moments in his own and other, classic films.
