Very personal and occasionally shocking film farewell filmmaker Cyrus Frisch made of and for his friend, mentor and tutor Hans Saaltink. Saaltink, film lover, film critic, festival programmer and distribution adviser, died of a heart attack on his 68th birthday in his front door and Frisch, being his neighbour, was there to record the most intimate moment in his life: his death. The filmmaker allowed the camera to run, which provided a cheeky form of cinema verité that not everyone could appreciate.
