QUALM & QUIETUS
a documentary short on death and the understanding of faith
dir. Phoebe Mussman
Part character study, part essay film, Qualm and Quietus challenges the anxiety with which we view death.
The documentary follows Kerry Lynn, a woman who just stepped down from leading a pagan sanctuary. Death has followed Kerry Lynn throughout life, leading her to form a relationship with Hekate: the Titan goddess of the underworld and all things in transition. In facing her mortality with grace and candor, Kerry Lynn allows viewers to see the perfection of impermanence for themselves.
