Time & Tickets

A doctor from Lima still works in the hospital, in New York a sexologist still sees clients, while elsewhere in the city a student attends lectures at the university. On the other side of the world, a spry Norwegian helps with lambing and a distinguished Dutchman is working fanatically on an online platform for human rights. What do they have in common? They’ve all passed their 100th birthday.

In this documentary, seven colourful centenarians give us a glimpse into their lives today and their rich pasts. All are still very active, even though the clock is ticking, bodies sometimes fail to cooperate, the loss of loved ones is painful, and some worry about the world’s future. Each tells their story in their own way, sometimes with humour, occasionally with a touch of melancholy, but always with the wisdom reserved only for the very eldest of us.

Heddy Honigmann, Netherlands, 2020, 93 min. English, Norwegian, Dutch & Spanish spoken, Dutch subtitles.
