Passing Time

Audio Tracks 

I started filming my grandparents in 2007. I was fifteen years old. I really loved my grandfather a lot but as the years went by, I turned my camera more and more towards my grandmother who was suffering from a disturbing illness. Alzheimer’s. I filmed a fraction of their lives, as it happens much of it towards the end, the last eight years.
