What is Time?
Shireen Pasha in Person

How do you answer a question like "What is time"? Director Shireen Pasha comes up with possible replies by visiting post-tsunami Sri Lanka. Interviewing survivors of the catastrophic phenomenon that hit the country three years ago, as well as volunteers and officials working toward the rehabilitation of the people who were severely affected, the filmmaker asks this deceptively simple question and ends up with very interesting observations. In Western culture time is most often equaled to money, overshadowing all other possible interpretations. No matter how hard government representatives try to sell the myth of what Pasha calls the coconut man, the peaceful Sri Lankan who doesn't ask for much in life, the fishermen who offer testimony in her film don't buy into it. Equally intriguing is the film's suggestion that starting fresh should also entail a change in our way of thinking. -SF Bay Guardian
