Cecil & Carl


Elvis León and Gaston Yvorra

USA, 15 min

Cecil has lived alone in a giant house ever since Carl, his partner of 43 years, was diagnosed with advanced dementia and admitted to a nursing home. Not about grand gestures of love or being gay, this story focuses on commitment and the duties that come with it.
