All things must come to an end: relationships, governments, life…even the planet. Each of these six films explore different aspects of life-altering events. From the moving story of twin brothers separated by conflict (Pierre-Pierrot, Best Documentary Short) to the haunting end of the world drama of Light Years, these films cover a whole spectrum of human emotion and experience. Fathers and sons work through their issues, couples face a pregnancy, and mothers try desperately to sustain their families. The end is always a good time to reflect and consider what has happened.
