When a filmmaker goes home to interview an old professor, he finds a very different man from the one he remembered. The suave, handsome, chain-smoking teacher whose lectures captivated students is now obsessed with time and order. He has taught psychology at the same college for 48 years, 6 months, and 3 days. His commute to work takes 17 minutes; he has determined the ideal time to leave his house is 8.13 AM. He owns over 1,006 talking clocks, the largest collection in the world, certified by Guinness. He also holds the Guinness record for longest uninterrupted series of figure eights on a personal transporter, in under 2 minutes. Told in interviews, animation, and re-enactments, “Forever Professor” is both a portrait of a brilliant eccentric and a film about time, in all its glory and banality.
