The Mourning After

After the last four(ever) years, we are here. In a place where we are NOT not grieving. Whether it is the reality of never returning to the before times, the passing of loved ones, or climbing out of burnout, our grief IQ is a real thing. In their way of saying its okay to not be okay, these ardent filmmakers confront how death hits those left behind, gifting these stories to help metabolize our emotions together in a dark theater. Bring your tissues for this one.

Some of us who need a good cry, folks who are going through it, those who have loved and lost, IFNJ personalities who live to feel, ISFJ/ ESFJ fam who are first responders in their communities.
