For Susan explores the idea of dignity. Inspired by the director’s grandmother’s notebooks, it finds pleasure in activities hidden or forgotten.
Focusing its sights on daily life in old age, this quiet, observational short delves into notions of self-dependence and the dignity of senior citizens. Filmmaker Arunima Tenzin pores over her grandmother’s routines and old notebooks to make a poetic case for the hidden joys of mundane activities.
