My life is a movie

With a group of our elderly people who spent in the later seasons of their lives in a nursing home, we have established a cinema workshop in the nursing home where they live in order to save them from familiar proconceptions.
In order to script and play their own troubles and stories with the cinema education they will receive, we are participating in the adventure of making a film together on this artistic journey we set out on together.

Director Statement

In this documentary, I wanted to show that human beings are trying to hold on to life in any way possible. I wanted to explain how enthusiastic and willing many elderly people in nursing homes are to learn and experience new things in life. Contrary to what is known, many of them are full of life and energy.
