SYNOPSIS:

Le Fix proudly present Club 99.7, A film by artist and director Nina Holmgren.  As an homage to her own grandfather, Nina Holmgren has created Club 99.7, an honest and heartfelt portrait of him as a stylish poet in the final months of his life.  The short film is the product of Nina Holmgren spending valuable time with her grandfather Willy for weeks on end, talking, dressing up, writing and laughing while constantly cherishing every moment, knowing it could be their very last together.  Unconditional love across generations shines through in every shot in the film. From delicate close-ups of Willy’s old, flaky skin to portraits of him as fashion-conscious old man, Club 99.7 proves that style has no age and that a warm personality and a curious mind overcomes everything.  “Time ticks slowTowards whom does it go?  My teeth in water swimAs I like to keep clean and trimThe clothes should fit youLike a woman’s touch so warm,  Caressing my very formThe wounds of timeThey lovingly holdSo I can stay well-dressedWhen I’m a hundred years old.”   – Willy Kristian
