Hello

Synopsis

The title is from the eponymous volume written by Ajji – a reclusive children’s author now in her ‘80s. Partly-observational, partly-interactive, the film captures Ajji’s hermetic existence in her suburban apartment, reflecting on both the vitality and fragility of old age. The film is an ode to a life of quiet dignity and the evanescence of all things material, and a tale of the tender relationship between grandmother and grandson.
