a short film about hard decisions, big commitments, and possibly being a victim of botched time travel.
shot in philadelphia, pa.
Another Time is the story of Harriet, a 27 year old woman dealing with typical problems of indecisiveness, daily panic attacks, the sense of being lost, and a total fear of commitment. Only Harriet has more than twenty-something angst to blame for her troubles- she honestly believes she is a victim of botched time travel and belongs in 1783. Haunted by strange dreams, a hazy childhood, and strong connections to various historic parts of the city, she will suddenly be thrown into a situation that makes the question all the more pressing: Is she willing to give up finding a way home and settle into her modern existence?
