Heartbeat & White Noise
dir. Shannon Donovan
Heartbeat and White Noise examines the all-encompassing
emotions surrounding grief and attempts to visually articulate the preoccupation and dissociation in navigating one’s mortality and the enormity of loss through connection with nature and the elements.
