Henry Corra & Regina Nicholson
United States, 123 min

The greatest wish of a terminally ill 17-year-old girl, Regina Nicholson, leads to a deep, loving and controversial relationship with 55-year-old filmmaker Henry Corra. A film that questions ethical boundaries in filmmaking and results in a rich, complex and powerful work, that could be perceived as extremely disturbing and irresistibly moving, clearly raw and undeniably beautiful at the same time.

Henry meets Regina at a film festival, she tells him her story and he vows to help her to make a movie about her life. The life’s wish of a terminally ill 17-year-old girl and film lover, Regina Nicholson, leads to a deep, loving and controversial relationship with 55-year-old filmmaker Henry Corra. Henry and Regina periodically meet and constantly discuss their project, but the nature of the situation seems to ask for a deeper involvement and for uncommon guts to both sides. Henry gets closer to Regina as her parents try to oppose to their project. The film follows the reaction of Regina to the therapies as we witness the emotional evolution of a young adult. A film which questions ethical boundaries in filmmaking and results in a rich, complex and powerful work, which could be perceived as extremely disturbing and irresistibly moving, clearly raw and undeniably beautiful at the same time.
