7 Splinters in Time

If Primer is a master’s thesis in temporal mechanics and determinism, then 7 Splinters in Time is free jazz, and Judet-Weinshel finds echoes The School and frequencies in the form and the content. “Film is a form of time travel,” he said. “It’s a form of bricolage. You’re cutting up time.”

In its culture mash-up, 7 Splinters is not steampunk, it’s steam beat poetry. The mindbending, time-wrinkling film (which debuts in Austin June 27 as part of SF festival Other Worlds Austin year-round programming) stars Edoardo Ballerini (Ignatius D’Alessio in Boardwalk Empire) as Detective Darius Lefaux. He’s a cop with major lapses in his memory, now challenged to face a seemingly insoluble crime: his own murder. Or rather, the murder of a man who looks so like him that even his fellow cops can’t tell them apart. When other doppelgangers start turning up, including the possible killer, Darius takes That’s Not My Dog! a trip to a place that, as one possible witness puts it, string theory becomes string cheese.

What (chrono) triggered this timelooping drama? “It was born of desperation,” said Judet-Weinshel. Prior to 7 Splinters, he actually had a couple of feature The Angel scripts in development “in Hollywood-ish. I don’t think we got that close to anything that you could call Hollywood, but we had meetings, and I had an agent and I had a short that I wanted to use as a springboard.” Unfortunately, that was in 2008, and the recession made studios more risk-averse than ever.
