Chronicles of a Professional Eulogist
(2008): How do our immortality projects allow us to outwit our own aggressive denial of mortality? How and why we strive to create a verbal imprint of a dead soul? This film uses hand-drawn (India ink, gouache and wax) animation to explore the role of those who minister to the soul and manage the inflections of individual and communal sentimentality within the process of creating and sustaining social memory. In the film, our protagonist-protégé Milder matriculates to and graduates from the University of Eulogy. The film chronicles his field research as he explores the difficult dialectic of spiritual gratitude and the reality of mortality.
