About this submission
I wanted to tell a story about loss that went beyond grieving, something that reached toward peace without necessarily arriving there. I knew from the outset that I wanted the film to be made in one continuous shot, with very little dialogue, because that felt like the truest way to tell such an intimate story. How does somebody move through grief? What do we wish we could hear, or say, if we had the chance? I tried to imagine the most sweeping declaration of love, and then compressed that into the smallest possible gesture. This is where I landed.
