Up The River With Acid

Harald Hutter

Leigné-sur-Usseau, France | 2022 | 63 | 35mm
North American Premiere

Two days in the life of Horst, an elderly man whose life has been upended by dementia. After years of wandering the globe, the filmmaker’s parents have returned to his mother’s village in France. His father, who worked as a philosophy professor for 42 years, has slowly seen his cognitive abilities decrease and his daily life increasingly difficult to negotiate. Through a series of portraits we observe a man’s attempt to hold on to a rapidly shifting and alien world.
