Weaving together portraiture, travelogue, and landscape The Day of Two Noons uses shifts in space, subject, and historical circumstance to investigate standardized time as a process experiential normalization. Exploring the context in which a cultural experience of time is developed, an outline is formed of experiences that do and do not fit within such a standard. The film attempts a diagnostic on the nervous system of a country. –Mike Gibisser
