This visually arresting film, made by dance artist Tiffany Rhynard, is a 'momento mori.' A beautiful young woman dressed in Victorian garb appears in a cemetery with an umbrella full of blooming flowers. Amidst gravestones and later on a green field, she reflects back and thinks forward, giving us the opportunity to ponder our own joy in life and our own mortality.
