The Timekeeper (2013)
11min · Documentary, Short, Adventure · 1 January 2013
This short documentary is a portrait piece about Johnny Votta, who is known by many as The Timekeeper. Everyday at exactly two oclock he aggressively commands a hectic intersection by belting out the time and ordering pedestrians and cars to stop and go when signaled. However, no one pays Johnny for the work he does and most people barely pay him any attention. He is just seen as one of the many strange and mysterious characters that New York City has to offer, which ostracizes him even further from the community that he deeply cares for.
