Can 'Pendant' be related to the present?

The video in the following lesson says that it has no relation to the present

Using 'depuis' (since / for) with Le Présent and NOT Le Passé Composé (prepositions of time)

The lesson says that pendant is used to express the duration of a time span which starts in the past and continues into the present. So, yes, it is related to the present.

Is that what you were asking?

Yes. But the video in the link above confused me, it says 'pendant' refer to the entire duration of an action in the past or future, with no relation to the present
