World Cinema


  • Description
  • A single female subject occupies the frame she talks about her relationships with the men in her life. This starkly simple structuralist approach renders on e of the most powerful documentaries of the year on love, loss and life. Beginning with infants and progressing chronologically through to elderly women, the film broadly describes the relationships that define us. Keeping the subjects isolated in the frame further accentuates how external relation ships shape the lines defining a human being. Already a winner at numerous celebrated world film festivals, this doc artfully shares person al descriptions of first loves, father-daughter relations, marriage and the heartbreak of widowhood Not to be missed, this is one of the rare documentaries selected at this year's AF) FEST. With understated grace an d a brisk running time, the film pulls laughter an d tears out of its audience with astonishing efficiency
