Some people believe that the last thought we have, before we die, is where we will spend eternity.
I Remember When I Die explores memory’s relationship with matter, the value of remembering and the fear of being forgotten. Set in a hospice, the patients are asked to choose the memory they will think of when they die.
Dramatically, the film works with shifts in time and place, rather than building a story chronologically. Actors will help memories into shape and scientists will be approaching the hypothetical design of a personal eternity.
