When seminal documentarian Ed Pincus— considered the father of first person nonfiction film—is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and collaborator Lucia Small team up to make one last film, over the objections of Jane, Ed’s wife of 50 years. Told from two filmmakers’ and one subject’s points of view, One Cut, One Life challenges the form of first-person documentary and offers a sometimes comedic, sometimes tragic view of the human condition. Ed and Lucia’s intense and raw approach to filming offers a vulnerability and intimacy rarely seen in nonfiction, questioning whether some things might be too private to be made public.
