Memento meets Benjamin Button in this gripping and fascinating feature film exploring the life and loves of a unique individual.


Otto Bloom is going backwards in time – his body is aging normally but his consciousness is doing the reverse. He can only remember the future. Exploring his meteoric rise to fame and subsequent fall through fake interviews with friends, lovers and social commentators, we discover an utterly compelling and believable story.  


Followed by a Q&A with the director, Cris Jones
