10 Years of Discovering the Best Documentaries for You



Olda

Olda

Directed by Viera Čákanyová. Czech Republic, 2010, 80 min.

A retired elderly woman who suffers from memory loss, Olda roams untiringly around her house: she thinks about her son, talks to her dog, complains about “damned capitalism” and how it reduces life to money, she drinks beer, prepares meals, takes medication . . . but her primary activity is filming. She films herself as she lives her life—a last stand against the oblivion that approaches.

Selected by IDFF Jihlava.
