Further And Further Away

A breathtakingly beautiful short film about a brother and sister dealing differently with wrapping up their lives before moving to the big city.

The brother is facing the future, he is eager to get on with living his life in the city, and all the opportunities it might afford. The sister wants to go one last time to the old village where they grew up, now completely flooded and partly submerged. She wants to pay her respects at the tomb of her parents, and hopes that the move won’t break her relationship with their spirits. She goes once again to mourn, a process that takes as long as loving.

She and her brother are moving further and further away from their past, but also from each other, in attitude and outlook. But the hope of the movie is all distances can close.
