Echo of You

Directed by Zara Zerny
Co-Presentation with Hot Docs Film Festival
Gather your tissues for this stirring look at a rarely explored stage of aging: after-love. Life-long relationships generally end up being told as one-sided stories, since one partner almost always outlives the other. Here, an ensemble of Danish men and women aged 80 and up offer their collective experience of losing their person, and the life that continues without them. They describe heartache, yes, and loneliness at times, but these expressive individuals also detail with great beauty what it means to live fully with memories. Through gorgeous cinematography, artful projections and the naturalness of their age, these other halves express the feel, smell and taste of the spaces they now experience alone. Far from a sad testament of loss, this sensuous, life-affirming portrait generously shares what it means to say—and survive—goodbye.
