ZDF Studios and China Media Group Unite for Milestone Co-Production: 'Time: A Journey Through Thousands of Years
ZDF Studios and the Film, Drama, and Documentary Programming Center of China Media Group (CMG) proudly announce their groundbreaking co-production partnership, unveiling "Time: A Journey Through Thousands of Years" (2x50’), a collaborative venture with arte and global distributor ZDF Studios. 
This ambitious two-part documentary, directed by Jens Monath and Heike Schmidt of ZDF, the acclaimed team behind the award-winning series 'Anthropocene - The Rise of Humans,' delves into the universal theme of time.

"Time: A Journey Through Thousands of Years" explores the evolution of time discovery, the history of time measurement, and its profound impact on contemporary life. The documentary draws on long-term studies to analyze how time constraints affect our lives, making moments of happiness more elusive. Can we break free from the time trap and embrace more joy? With each person's clock ticking 31,556,952 times a year, the film prompts introspection on our role in shaping the passage of time.

Einstein's assertion that "time is relative" forms a central theme, highlighting the subjective nature of temporal experience. The documentary skillfully weaves narratives, such as a captivating story of ice diving in Switzerland's snowy mountains, to illustrate how our perception of time varies, influenced even by the elements.

The film contemplates humanity's unique ability to engage in mental time travel, a capability that fueled the invention of agriculture and now serves as a tool for political mediation in resolving conflicts. "Time: A Journey Through Thousands of Years" transcends the mere exploration of measurement and invention; it poses profound questions about how we can lead happier lives, not just as individuals but as a collective species. This collaboration marks an unprecedented partnership between ZDF Studios and CMG, promising an insightful exploration of the intricacies of time that resonate universally.
