Directed by: Anne Schiltz
This summer RTL Today is presenting a new 24-part documentary series taking an offbeat look at Luxembourg life. While they are subtitled in English, there is no voice-over, with people speaking their various languages. The series was first broadcast on RTL Télé Lëtzebuerg in 2015.
Each episode is the work of a different director from the K-13 collective. He or she follows a person within their community, permitting the spectator, through that person's daily life, dreams and personal conflicts, to immerse themselves in a new reality. Containing no commentary or judgements, the series is inspired by documentary observation films, giving each producer the chance to offer his own view on a given situation.
As an adult, Marcel goes back to school. It’s not easy to relearn how to read and write, but it’s worth the effort in order for him to finally express himself about his painful childhood. Never too late is the story of a man who, despite the odds, has learned never to give up.
