I Like It Here

Ralph Arlyck (Dir), 88 minutes, USA, Western New York Premiere

Director Ralph Arlyck in attendance.

We talk, or laugh, about aging but we rarely confront its reality. The film does this but is, finally, about the pleasures of being alive. The filmmaker tries to convey how it feels to be seeing the winding down of your life. He spends time with friends from his past and present and ruminates about the challenges of getting old; of feeling your joints and thoughts stiffen, as the camera confronts – often humorously -- obstacles and surprises on the last lap.

This short follows Angela, an artist with Alzheimer's disease, as she tries to paint. Trapped in a surreal loop, Angela struggles to do what was once natural for her.
