The Cans of Time is a film rendering of the themes and outcomes of the Family Archives project. The aim of the Family archives was to collect and digitalize amateur film footage from various regions across the Slovak republic. In four years we collected around 400 hours of footage. Apart from the popular and traditional family footage the project has managed to source some rare historical footage such as the one capturing the construction of a huge sculpture of the Slovak politician M.R. Štefánik in 1937, or a few cases of private footage capturing the Russian invasion of 1968. Of an interesting value is also the insight the footage offers into various forms and shapes of the life of the middle classes.
