In this affectionate portrait, Kimi Takesue finds an unlikely collaborator in Tom, her 90 year old widowed grand father in Hawai’i.Tom’s memories become intertwined with the fictional screenplay his grand daughter is writing, revealing the fine line between life and art,rumination and imagination. Shot over six years, this meditation on absence and family expands the vernacular of the “homemovie” to consider how history is accumulated in the everyday.
