This profile of Eustache’s grandmother, Odette Robert, captured across an uninterrupted conversation, celebrates a disappearing and largely overlooked way of life and its collective history. As Robert tells her life story over whiskey and cigarettes, Eustache, filming with two cameras to enable long, overlapping takes, deliberately brings attention to the film’s production – talking to the cameraman, operating the clapperboard and receiving a telephone call. In the process, life and film come together to chronicle the intertwined complexities of human life across the generations.
