Award-winning documentarian Heddy Honigmann (Forever, SFF 2007), faced with a terminal illness, confronts her complicated family past and revisits significant moments from her remarkable life and career.
Renowned for her ability to connect with her subjects, the esteemed Netherlands-based filmmaker reflects on her own journey as she comes to terms with her terminal illness in this moving documentary. She travels to her birthplace in Lima to visit old friends and places. She recalls her father, a Holocaust survivor, whose controlling ways compelled her to leave Peru. She also discusses her approach to filmmaking: “One should never interview a person; instead, you should have a conversation, which will give information, but more importantly, convey the emotion that makes the encounter memorable.” This life-affirming look at Honigmann’s history and career includes clips from her films such as Metal and Melancholy (SFF 1994) and Goodbye (SFF 1996).
Honigmann lets her philosophy guide her through the most personal work in her life.
Marc Glassman, Point of View Magazine
Her delight in asking questions and finding truths still shines through and helps make this latest – and perhaps last – film rather special.
Mark Adams, Business Doc Europe
