DIGITAL SHORT (13 minutes)
The only way to fly is to stand still…
When a suicidal businessman leaps to his death, three homeless bystanders begin a journey to bury him in a way they see befitting his life, his death, and his dreams. Eulogy is a poetic and surreal story of a boy’s downfall into manhood and the passing from life to death.
Eulogy is a visceral film that scrutinizes the feeling of being inextricably linked to the more-than-human world and the longing we experience when we become alienated from it. It explores the sense of belonging we often experience as children when we have the capacity to appreciate the beauty of the simplest details of life: standing in a field and holding the majesty of a simple wind in our outstretched hand.
