About the Film

TWILIGHT OF A LIFE | עד קצה הזריחה

The mother of director Sylvain Biegeleisen is 94 years old… but in her mind, she is still twenty. Confined to bed, she spends hours with her son—laughing, singing, and offering kisses while he records every moment. At times she’s lucid, recalling her life with assertiveness and astonishing clarity. Increasingly, though, her loss of memory leaves her no way to communicate except through smiles, gestures, the language of touch and affection. The result is a tale of laughter, optimism, and the joy of life in its last precious hours. “I’m always fighting,” says the mother. “There’s always something worth holding out for.”
