Writer/director Hayden J Weal uses chronesthesia (aka mental time travel — the ability to think into the past and future) as a catalyst for romantic comedy in this low-budget feature. Weal stars as a young Wellington barista whose routine is disrupted by mysterious messages, dreams and strangers, plus a flurry of odd coincidences. The cast includes Hunt for the Wilderpeople’s Julian Dennison and Cohen Holloway, plus Michelle Ny (Reservoir Hill). Titled Love and Time Travel outside of Aotearoa, the movie debuted in the Wellington edition of the 2016 NZ Film Festival.

It was ten times funnier and beautiful than I could’ve imagined. Lyndee-Jane [Rutherford] was hilarious! A director of theatre, she got the vibe of the scene and went to town on it. Me and Simeon [Duncombe, Chronesthesia's cinematographer] watched the footage when we got home and collapsed into tears. Every take is golden.
