Funeral of a Marriage Counsellor
Premiered at Palm Springs ShortFest 2022
Following the sudden death of their long-term and much-too-depended-upon counsellor, a couple in their 50s take a chaotic stab at rebalancing their relationship, while grappling with their own mortality.
Lucy and Johanna are on their honeymoon. Johanna is partially, and Lucy profoundly, Deaf. A seemingly insignificant disagreement about the sullen landlady, turns into a hurtful argument, as the noise of the weir dominates the background.
