A Film Explores Memory, Love and Identity at the End of Life

Two Oscar-winning directors tell the story of a couple growing old together.

With simplicity and depth directors TJ Martin and Dan Lindsay bring us an emotionally charged documentary about family and the pains of old age. The film revolves around an audio conversation between Martin’s grandfather and grandmother, who was dying of cancer at the time. Featured alongside a selection of home videos and photos, the conversation is a portrait of the life the couple lived. But more than a simple celebration of those moments, the film challenges the viewer to grapple with the highs and lows of life, including age, decay, and death.

Previously, Martin and Lindsay’s film Undefeated won the 2012 Oscar for Best Feature Length Documentary.
