My First And Last Film (2020)

1h 9m / Not Rated / Documentary NOW AVAILABLE TO STREAM AT HOME! This is an arthouse theatrical exclusive, not available on other streaming platforms.

Retired tech executive Tracey Thomas never even considered making a film. But after turning 60, she found herself in the midst of a new sort of existential crisis: what is aging? What do we do with our time here? What does it mean to make it through six decades, and how much more is to come?

Camera in hand, and with the help of her romantic and filmmaking partner Dennis (himself a year away from turning 60), Thomas began conversations with friends, family, academics and others, skipping the small talk and delving right into the unique wisdom and perspective that comes with aging. When Dennis is unexpectedly diagnosed with ALS, a condition that would progress quickly and lead to his untimely passing during production, Thomas is at a crossroads: continue filming, as she promised him she would, or give in to grief and solitude? Her answer, of course, is within My First and Last Film, a deeply personal documentary that ruminates on life, love and our most unanswerable questions.
