πŸ•°οΈ "The History of Time Travel: A Mockumentary Masterpiece?" πŸ•°οΈ

Dive into the mockumentary that defies expectations and bends reality as we explore "The History of Time Travel," a film that challenges the very fabric of its genre. This isn't just a faux-documentaryβ€”it's a cleverly woven tapestry of time travel theory, family drama, and a constantly shifting narrative that will have you questioning what's real.

Ricky Kennedy's college film project presents a fictional story of a family's obsession with time travel, leading to world-altering consequences. As the tale unfolds, the documentary itself morphs, with subtle changes in interviews and backgrounds that signify alterations in the timeline. It's a film that doesn't just tell a story; it evolves with it.

Join Desmond McNeese and Scott Lifton as they dissect the layers of this indie gem. They'll tackle the paradoxes, the ethical dilemmas, and the mind-bending notion that the history you're watching is rewritten before your very eyes. πŸ“œπŸ”„
