TODAY – The passing of time – Short Documentary by Prisca Bouchet and Nick Mayow

TODAY is a short documentary by Prisca Bouchet and Nick Mayow following the passing of time in a South Auckland rest home.

The directors were inspired to make the film after having their grandparents move into homes recently and as film-makers they felt these environments offered an opportunity to explore compelling themes around isolation, community and the place of the elderly in New Zealand society.
