Cord of Life (2022) NYAFF 2023

Across the board one of the top films at this year's NYAFF, CORD OF LIFE is full of life. 

The film is the story of a musician who takes his mother, who is suffering with Alzheimer's Disease back to the Mongolian country side one last time.

It's a simple plot for a complex and touching film. Full of moments that will ring true for anyone who has had to deal with aging and sick parents, this film doesn't sugar coat what a chore they can be. Additionally the film also shows us what a joy it can be to connect to our parents at a time in our lives when we don't always think that is possible, I was moved  by what I was seeing because I could see moments with both my mom and my dad before they passed.

Technically this film is a marvel.  One of the absolute must sees on a big screen films playing the festival CORD OF LIFE is a delight for the ear and the eye. I can not impress enough how gorgeous this film is. I say that because watching man sequences I wished I was seeing the film on an even bigger screen so that I could truly fall into the images.

This is filmmaking of the height order.

Highly recommended- this film will delight your eyes and move your soul
