24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
The filmmaker returns to a Hungarian village for her last visit to her grandmother. The blurring images emphasize the mental distance resulting from physical distance, but also the time that has passed since the childhood memories remembered in her quiet voiceover, which make up for the disappearing memories of the aging body.
“The film grew out from a personal life situation when my grandmother got dementia at the age of 85. While she was losing her memories I tried to keep them even stronger than ever.” D. Zurbó
Hungarian filmmaker Dorottya Zurbó (1988) studied documentary film directing at the University of Theatre and Film Arts in Budapest. Her contemplative works explore personal memories but also look at broader social issues such as immigration, homesickness and aging.
