A 105-year-old Acadian agrees to be filmed one Sunday as she goes about her daily routine and ruminates on life. Filmed by her great-grandson, Aldéa Pellerin-Cormier comments wisely on politics, sex and religion. From getting ready in the morning to drinking her nightcap before bed, every moment is punctuated with a witticism or existential thought. Respectful of the old woman's privacy, Daniel Léger's first documentary looks at wisdom, serenity and enjoyment of life. In French with English subtitles.

Study Guide
The “cult of eternal youth” is worshipped today, with some advertisements for cosmetic creams even aimed at young teens. What if ads suddenly made a shift to reality? What if they promoted the beauty of wrinkles and other signs of aging, associating them with positive attributes? Have students meet this challenge by creating their own ads in the medium of their choice: print, video or audio.
