"To get the freedom of time again, we had to free ourselves from the structure of time - and see what would happen." 
- Director, Producer, Cinematographer - Suzanne Crocker
Multi-award winning All The Time In The World is a poetic, inspiring and humourous documentary that chronicles life's natural unfolding when a family tries to let go of the control that is required in our time-based world.
In search of a new perspective, a family of five makes the decision to leave the comforts of home to live remotely in the Yukon wilderness during the long northern winter amidst the surprises that the rawness of nature provide. The parents leave their jobs and take their three children, ages 10, 8 and 4, to spend nine months living in a small cabin with no road access, no electricity, no running water, and no internet, and not a single watch or clock.
Set in the Yukon Territory, and filmed off grid without a traditional crew, All The Time In The World is a deeply personal and family friendly documentary that explores the theme of disconnecting from our hectic and technology laden lives in order to reconnect with each other, ourselves and our natural environment.  

“A magnificent film with a powerful message to those of us who live busy urban lives. Anyone watching this film will have to ask - what is life all about, why am I in such a hurry, what is it that gives us true happiness. Thank you for making a film that demands that we answer those questions.” - David Suzuki
“I normally don’t recommend family-friendly, heartwarming, uplifting films, but this one is all of those and yet still terrific and important.” - Alan MacInnis, VIFF Reviews
“…my favourite film of the year” - Lucy Van Oldenbarnevald, CBC TV Ottawa
“a contemporary Walden that enfolds kids and adults in the inspiring dream of finally having time.” - Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Toronto, ON

"3 and a half out of 4 stars" - Globe and Mail
“8/8 Stars - a heart-swellingly wonderful account of togetherness, ingenuity, creativity and invention, and a telling look at how letting go of technology can strengthen – not compromise –connection.” - MoviePie Hot Docs 2015 Reviews
“All The Time In The World is near perfection. The images cast a spell, and so does the story.” - Ken Eisner, The Georgia Straight, Vancouver

“Most of the films that make you think show you how miserable life can be elsewhere, but All the Time in the World showed us how simple and beautiful life can be if we make a few life style changes.”  - Reel 2 Real Youth Jurist
