This experimental documentary about the director’s grandmother was shot over a ten-year period, creating an unexpected and powerful portrait of old age. Remembering an old woman in fragmented and alienated associations. The attempt to find one’s own history in the image of the late grandmother. An attempt also to bridge the gap between a sentiment and its linguistic form with the means of video aesthetics. A radically experimental work.
