Spanish premiere

Age is… is a new feature meditating on the subjective experience and cultural concepts of ageing. Here is an ode to the texture, the beauty, the singularity of aging faces and silhouettes, a hypnotic poem of long observations of very tiny details: a gesture, a pause, a look, a moment. Throughout his films intimacy has always played the leading role and this is also true for Age is…, all the faces being those of close friends, of their relatives and sometimes even of Stephen himself.
