DREAMS of the DEAD – THE FILM
Documentary, 18 minutes, 2019
DREAMS of the DEAD is a first-person journey propelled by memory and dreams.
When the filmmaker’s grandmother dies a sudden and traumatic death, the house that had been the emotional hub of the family becomes a portal to the past. But suburban development is encroaching, and the house is sold. With its demolition looming, the filmmaker takes us on a compelling voyage of emotional transformation.

THE MEMORY PROJECT
In the wake of death, what remains? Random artifacts, photographs, and places charged with meaning. We encourage you to share an image and your own story of an object, a place, or a photograph with emotional resonance – something that you have held on to, or something you’ve let go of.
