EN - The film shows two filmmakers who attempt to portray each other: a mutual gaze to narrow down the gap that divides two people. But love and its portrayal, even when it is mutual, is never equal. As the viewer follows the two women through landscapes and old buildings, a letter is being read to us which describes the experience of creating the images we see.

2014: VAF Wildcard for Experimental Film (BE)

Five Flemish selections for Visions du Réel

On April 17, Twilight of a Life by Sylvain Biegeleisen is to open the International Documentary Film Festival Visions du Réel in Nyon, Switzerland. The festival programme also includes Battles, The Rabbit and the Teasel and the short film On Difference As Such. A fifth documentary from Flanders, The Colour of the Chameleon, has been selected for the Pitching du Réel co-production platform. Visions du Réel runs from 17-25 April.

Twilight of a LifeTwilight of a Life is an upbeat portrait of a 94-year-old woman confronting the restrictions of her age, and the relationship she has with her son and the film’s director. Although doctors once gave her just weeks to live, she lived another two years. For her son, this became an opportunity to create a film about life, full of humour and emotion.
