Life without Death
dir. Frank Cole / Canada 2000 / 83’
subtitles: Polish and English
Cinema of Canada


Frank Cole

Film description

After having conquered the Sahara Desert once already, filmmaker Frank Cole began another lonely, harrowing journey across the dangerous Sahara by camel, confronting his deeply developed fascination with death. Will the desert beat him, cause him to abandon, or will he fall prey to the shifting weather patterns or political banditry in the various countries he passes through? Filmed by Cole himself, the striking images of the desert are combined with flashbacks of his beloved grandfather. Cole here creates a powerful cry for life and a disturbing meditation on mortality. Rigorous and strangely, powerfully life affirming, Life without Death is an extraordinary cinematic experience. At once a road movie, a spiritual diary and a journal of obsession, this film explores the confrontation between the human and a vast, formidable and dangerous landscape. It is an unforgettable film. It is also Frank Cole's final film, as he was murdered during a third Saharan crossing in 2000.
