“I Was Just Desperate to Bottle up My Wonderful Dad Somehow”: DP Ondi Timoner on Last Flight Home

After a patient in California makes a Death With Dignity request, there is a 15-day wait until that request can be filled. Ondi Timoner’s Last Flight Home was filmed during that period, when Timoner’s father said his final goodbyes to his family. As Timoner, who also served as the director of photography, describes, she attempted to be as unobtrusive as possible while filming, but her footage captures the pain of losing a loved one, as well as the solace a family finds in itself in such moments.

Sundance 2022 Women Directors: Meet Ondi Timoner – “Last Flight Home”

Ondi Timoner is an internationally-acclaimed filmmaker who has the rare distinction of winning the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance twice – for “Dig!” (2004), about the collision of art and commerce, and “We Live in Public” (2009), about the loss of privacy online as predicted in a bunker in NY over the turn of the millennium. Both films were acquired by MoMA NY for its permanent collection. Since then, her credits have included “Join Us,” “Cool It,” “Brand: A Second Coming,” “Jungletown,””Coming Clean,” and “Mapplethorpe.” Timoner is currently directing a feature about the disruption and decentralization of finance.
