A Space In Time


“A Space in Time” masterfully blends poetry and reality in its portrayal of the Taussig family grappling with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. This intimate and candid film transcends typical narratives around disability, avoiding pity or tragedy to celebrate a life lived differently. Through a mix of interviews, personal archives, and impressionistic vignettes, it offers a glimpse into Theo and Oskar’s journey from mobility to wheelchair dependency, and their parents’ struggle with the inescapable fate of losing them to an incurable disease. It’s a thought-provoking exploration of life’s complexities, where disability is just one facet of a rich existence, which society often mistakenly perceives as weakness.

    ★★★★ It’s clear just how cruel the world can be, but this will truly make viewers appreciate what they have. A challenging and sobering watch, A Space in Time is as heartfelt as it is heartbreaking.
