About:
A meditative film set in a Turkish retirement home.

In this beautifully photographed, almost dream-like film, Mizrahi turns her camera on several residents of a Turkish retirement home. These vignettes offer a range of stories – sad to sweet, humorous to solemn – but, delivered by these aged figures, they speak to a search for meaning when faced with the end of life. As a counterpoint, scenes from the construction sites around the home play out occasionally, offering a look at would-be progress and future plans, enacted by young laborers. Full of indelible images and often equally unforgettable subjects, Mizrahi has crafted a thoughtful, haunting, and singular project.
