La Ultima Estacion

The Last Station

Chile, 2012, Colour, 90 min

A documentary film about old age that takes place in nursing homes. Under the contemplative look of a camera, the life and moments some old people face in their last stage are portrayed in an atmosphere of solitude and abandonment. These homes, and their long lasting passage of time, are the last station in life before setting out on the inevitable journey to death.
