George and George on the Lake

IF/Then Short Documentary Program | 2018 (East Doc Platform - Honorable Mention)

George and George are both 83. Every summer they sail together on the Mazury lakes in north-east Poland, happy with the simplicity of life, the beauty of nature and their friendship. One of them is getting weak- his hands tremble and his balance is off. The second George gently takes care of his friend. This may be their last summer together on the lake. The film shares an intimate image of friendship and of the beauty of life with a twist of humor.
