GEORGE AND GEORGE ON THE LAKE
(Jerzy i Jerzy na Jeziorze)
Documentary, 27 minutes

Two old men enjoy life on a sailing holiday.
This may be the last such summer for one of them.
George and George are both 83 years old. Every summer they sail together on the Mazury lakes in Northeast Poland, happy with the simplicity of life, the beauty of nature and their friendship. This might be the last such summer together. One of them is becoming weak. His hands tremble, his balance is off. The other George gently takes care of his friend. This short documentary, shot entirely in a verité style, shares an intimate image of friendship and the joy of life with a twist of humour.
