WHAT WE STILL CAN DO
By Nora Ananyan • 14' • Hungary
A gentle meditative touch on the relationship between mother and daughter in a hospice centre.
At this stage of their relationship, they both realize the importance of giving each other freedom.
The act of letting go of each other is opening an infinite space of love and appreciation - the little things they can do together.
