A NICE LITTLE FILM ABOUT A NICE LITTLE DEATH

"A Nice Little Film About A Nice Little Death" follows my relationship with my grandmother for one month before she dies, and for several months after.

Subtly integrated with another familial death that happens around the same period, this film is an intimate and innocent glimpse into history, inheritance, and the clumsiness of grieving.
