"Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you've lost it you can never get it back.” - Harvey Mackay
Time is a relative concept of the human mind
Yet it dictates every aspect of our lives
How we interact with each other …
Commute from one place to another …
Consume our daily existence
We set our lives around it
Yet never around our life
Stop and Smell the Roses exposes the irony of our relationship with time.
In our constant searching for material bounty, we negate the one thing that is limited .... Time
It's only when the whole world shuts down and we are forced into temporary lock down that we realise its true value.
Do we feel restless when presented with an abundance of time?
Imprisoned in a cell? Bored in fhe house?
Or do we indulge in this newfound luxury to stop and smell the roses?
16 dancers come together in a screendance to highlighting the importance of taking time to enjoy our lives!
To stop and smell the roses.
Directed by Kavitha Krishnan with choreography by Shahrin Johry. Music by Kailin Yong.
Film directed by Mohd. Yashssir, Millennia Motion Pictures
