The Realm of Forgotten Existence

Running time: 27'54"

Production: PL/UK 2015

While the film’s cinematography shows a landscape which often seems unchanged, the narration reveals fragments of forgotten stories and traditions, abilities, and professional life, which are no longer valued in modern society. In Piotr Pasta’s film we meet aged people from the Scottish-English border city of Berwick-upon-Tweed, who are at the end of their life’s journey. We do not see them, but we do hear their voices. The film connects accounts of oral history, archive materials, and new film footage.
