As we grow older, our joints stiffen and our movements become slower. Our body gradually morphs into its final state. Ragnar Ísleifur Bragason is old, he’s home alone. He keeps himself busy with sweeping the floor, walking around, packing. Who is he? Is he going somewhere? Is he maybe leaving and not coming back?
OLD is an ode to age, to old people who are a growing part of human race but don’t get much public attention. Which seems a bit awkward, given that most of us do get old and end our existence on earth as slow movers with a lot of time on our hands but limited ability to use it before it all blows away.
