A new short film by Mark Slutsky
Music by CFCF

“We’ve all noticed that time seems to move faster as we grow older — but what if you could build a machine that slowed time to the point of imperceptibility? In Mark Slutsky’s gorgeous new film The Decelerators, a group of people manage to do just that — and the result is almost worthy of The Twilight Zone.”

“Mark Slutsky’s five minute short film is one of the best science fiction films I’ve ever seen. It’s also easily one of the great films of the year.”
— Unseen Films
“One of the most poignant media on the experience of time I’ve ever experienced.”
— Fiona Duncan, Bullett Media
“It’s moody and elegant and weird, and I really enjoyed it. You will too.”
— Norm Wilner, NOW
“‘The Decelerators’ is a ephemeral film which deserves praise, balancing philosophy and great cinematography. It might be just another time-travel story, but its fleeting presence lingers on way beyond the final credits.”
