About this submission

Rex, a gifted marble sculptor, lives in Colorado on a property littered with half-finished headstones, a faithful dog, and a family of scrap metal minions.

In this short documentary, we journey into the enigmatic world of Rex, a self-made sculptor who engages in philosophical musings about mortality — verbalizing his abandonment of fear to his headstones. Despite his eccentricities, Rex scraps together a living through his meticulously crafted commissions.

‘Stone Dead’ invites viewers to delve deep into the intriguing intersection of life and death, a compelling narrative that challenges our perceptions of what it means to be near the end.
