Yesterday It Wasn’t Too Bad, Mr. Schürmann

Running time: 24'7"

Production: DE 2016

“This is the third and most interesting part of my life” says Mr. Schürmann. The protagonist is wandering through corridors in search of new tasks. In the past, Mr. Schürmann loved to read, take pictures, and film. His new world is entirely different – it is a clean and cold atmosphere of a hospital whose patients never leave. For two months Mr. Schürmann has been living in a closed home for people suffering from dementia. He lives by the rule that there must be mutual support. The director has made a warm, moving, and occasionally humorous story about elderly people who only have each other.
