When documentarian Ed Pincus, considered the father of first-person non-fiction film, is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and collaborator Lucia Small team up to make one last film - much to the chagrin of Jane, Ed's wife of 50 years.

This New York Film Festival selection is told from both filmmakers' points of view. Ed and Lucia's unique approach to filming offers an intimacy rarely seen in docs, questioning whether some things might be too private to be made public. An intense, raw, yet sometimes humorous exploration of the human condition, One Cut, One Life invites viewers to contemplate for themselves what is important, not only at the end of life, but also during.

"Critic's Pick! Ravishingly beautiful...pulses with an almost ecstatic vitality." - The New York Times

"Thorny, tender and unvarnished...a breathtaking reminder of life's joys." - Los Angeles Times

"An elegy for the dead, the dying, and those who live on. It's a thing of lovely imperfections: profound and banal, self-absorbed and insightful, weighted with grief and buoyed by resilience. In short, as messy and precious as life itself." - Boston Globe
