Lady Time is a documentary film in which filmmaker Elina Talvensaari gets to know the previous occupant of her new home. She was an old woman who died alone with no one left to remember her. Everything she owned from books to furniture remained in the apartment and passed on to Elina. What would happen if Elina was to throw everything away? Fear of oblivion drove Elina to find out who the woman was. The film explores what gives human life meaning, and what happens to that meaning after a person’s death.
Lady Time premiered at IDFA 2019 in the Mid-length Competition and celebrated its domestic premiere at DocPoint Helsinki Documentary Film Festival 2020.
