Conversation at the end of life

2020 | Documentary | 17.5 min | BA Film

Collection: Degree Films 2020

How does one stand growing old? What sense does it make to keep living, when you can’t do anything anymore? Three old women answer my burning questions. A widow questions everything, a former dancer shows me what to do when you can't dance anymore, and a nun introduces me to what lies beyond. A personal quest to find out how to deal with the inevitable finiteness of life.
