Phantom Limb

USA, 2005, Colour/B&W, 28 min

  • Phantom Limb

The death of my seven-year-old brother when I was nine remains a painful and haunting memory. My parents did not know how to cope with the loss of their child and the entire family experienced indescribable pain. Phantom Limb uses this personal story as a point of departure. Whether it is a loss through death or divorce, the stages of grieving are the same. Individuals often go through denial, anger, bargaining, depression and, ultimately, some kind of acceptance, in order to heal. Phantom Limb reminds viewers that while grief is painful and isolating, it is a reminder to each of us that life is impermanent.
