I’m Here

Jestem tutaj





“I’m here!”, the protagonist would like to cry out, but she not even able to ask for a glass of water. She cannot get up either because the disease confined her to bed and made her dependent on others. Nevertheless, she can hear very well what her family members say about her condition. The everyday life of an older woman is documented by an immobile camera focused directly on her face. The other characters: her husband, daughter,
grandchildren, doctor or the priest are just a parade of legs that appear in the frame and comments that can be heard in the background. This piercing story about loneliness in the face of death is presented from the perspective of a dying woman, although she does not utter a word.
