When I face death – I face myself. A boy spends hours on a busy holiday beach. His impressions and thoughts circle around the idea of transience. Ocean waves, birds, wind, children screaming, footsteps in the wet sand, flicker of the sun, summery red, children's legs, a fish in the surf, worms, destroying a sand castle, distorted faces, beautiful white feathers, bones, sand flies. This short arose at time when the director was confronted with loss. MEMENTO MORI digests the realization that life can end at any moment. It finds a balance between grabbing life with both hands and just letting it evolve on its own. Although one may still fear the process of dying, by embracing death, the flow of life fills you.
