The Last First Time

A brief glimpse into the lives of Achiel and Marjorie, two Flemish Belgians from Gent, who have chosen two divergent paths concerning their own euthanasia. Marjorie has chosen life, and being a professional masseuse, she agreed to be filmed while meeting Achiel to give him his first, and last, professional massage of his life, two days before his death.

Songs About Home

Distorted archive footage shows an old woman living in a remote village in the Himalayas. But who is this woman singing a traditional love rhyme for the camera man? Years later we meet the same woman in a different setting. Everything around her seems to have changed but not her passion for singing. But who is listening to her songs of longing? Songs and silence, religion and science, East and West, past and present meet in a house somewhere in the Belgian ‘jungle’.
