Aged around 20, Simon has a brain tumour that is gradually destroying his memory and has condemned him to live in the immediate present. From this painful experience, his sister, Nora Štrbová, a filmmaker, has made an organic short animated documentary, which succeeds with a rare formal relevance to represent the inexorable loss of the being.
Nora Štrbová, born in Bratislava, she moved to Prague with her family at the age of four, where she lives today. She graduated from Animation at FAMU and after graduating from bachelor studies she started studying at department of Documentary Film. In her work she tends to the genre of documentary and experimental animation.
