'Where has the time gone?', a famous poem by Walterrean Salley, now has a movie interpretation.

The feature-length co-production film, named after this poem, consists of five short stories and is done by five directors from China, Brazil, Russia, India, and South Africa.

Chinese filmmaker Jia Zhangke has teamed up with four established directors from Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa to shoot the movie. Each film runs about 18 minutes. Done in the local language, it portrays each country's unique culture.

Earlier, 'Where has the time gone?' was shown as the opening film at the 2nd BRICS Film Festival in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan province. It will be released in Chinese cinemas this September.
