Suzanne Crocker began our correspondence by snail mail. A wonderful handwritten note and a DVD of her film arrived at my doorstep not a year ago, beginning a long distance conversation about making space, slowing down and modelling healthy tech habits as parents. Like me, Suzanne is a mother of three children. Like me, she works in media. Like me, she stepped away from technology in a most dramatic way.
Suzanne, a retired family physician turned filmmaker, and her husband moved their three children, ages 10, 8 and 4, to a remote part of the Yukon where they lived for most of a year. 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. The film has won more than 20 awards from around the world.
David Suzuki calls it a "magnificent film."
