90’
Directors
Cristian Soto, Catalina Vergara

A documentary film about old age that is set in nursing homes. Under the contemplative eye of the camera, the life and moments some old people face in their last stage are portrayed in an atmosphere of solitude and abandonment. Their families have no regard for them anymore, except when the occasional relative shows up to deal with a death. These homes, and the drawn-out passage of time, are the last station in life before setting out on the final inevitable journey.
