Paul's Last Waltz
Paul's Last Waltz

Filmmaker Lieza Röben’s father passed away two years ago. In the days before his death, Lieza and her family gathered to say goodbye to their (step)father. They experienced these days as a daze. In Paul's Last Waltz Lieza takes her family back to this significant period. Together they try to analyze the bubble they were in. In doing so their memories become more tangible and gradually they discover the art of dying.

Paul's Last Waltz is a film that can be used within hospitals, care institutions, support groups, shelters, after-care institutions and more.

We hope that the film will not only help people to talk about this, but perhaps stimulate to come to a better understanding or contributing to a certain processing.
