About this submission
A farmer shoots her husband's wing off as he ascends to heaven in the form of an angel.
Max and Lucy are twin filmmakers from Utah. This short is the third installment in a trilogy which presents their own cocktail of Magical Realism and Western (Rocky Mountain Mythology). The trilogy explores their mormon heritage and region’s identity by creating a local mythology inspired by the geographical and cultural facets of the Rockies. "The Widow’s Angel" is a modern myth that examines the theme of grief through the unique lens of Western agrarian life and mormon folk-magic.
