It’s now 23 hours since I was fortunate enough to watch Paul Duane’s What Time Is Death? and what a wonderful cinematic ride it was.
Paul’s documentary takes us every step of the way, from the firing of the million pound brick to the laying of Simon Cauty’s MuMuFied remains on November 23rd 2018.
Along the way, Bill and Jimmy lurk in the background as everyone involved in the development of The People’s Pyramid take centre stage.
Paul’s patient lens pulls out some wonderful moments along the way, encouraging us to believe, yes, it is real, this did really happen.
Hopefully, this film will eventually get a full release and this unique story about a unique project will get the audience it deserves.
