Separation Celebration is a short film exploring relationship separations as seeds of joy, family, friendship, healing and celebration. What was once painful now becomes a catalyst for learning, growth and the reforming of relationships into friendships, family, communities and unique parts of each other's stories.
Created improvisationally and collaboratively, Separation Celebration invites us into intimate conflict, separations of relationships of all kinds and makes visible space for our broken hearts. It imagines a future where these broken hearts not only heal but grow stronger in celebration and love.
This short is currently in the festival circuit.
