    • Synopsis
    • “When I was told that I had a brain tumour and not more than two years to live, I soon found out that I was not alone. There was a big community of people outthere who knew about the possibility of their imminent death - within the next two years. They were all living – some better, some worse – in this whirlpool of compressed time.
      But among them there were some outstanding figures who seemed somehow comforted, somehow at ease, even though tormented, with their fate. They were all artists, creators, and they were all working on what they thought it would be their last work of art: their testimony.
      I asked for permission to document with the camera this process. Jörg Immendorf, Vaclav Havel, Remus Georgescu a.o. opened the doors to their studios and allowed me an intimate glance at their work of passage. A two years journey has just started…
      By the end of this film some of the protagonists and perhaps the filmmaker, too, will be dead, but something else will remain. Perhaps.“
