Do Not Resuscitate
Directed by Hana Dahl
An elderly man obsessed with his own death meets his kindred spirit. Following their motto “Live each day like it’s your last,” the two live out the rest of their days attempting to fulfill their death wish. From the first note of Amilcare Ponchielli’s “Dance of the Hours” to the film’s final moment, this dark comedy finds a suitable place amidst the animated films due to its use of caricature and hyperbolic humor.
