Title: WHERE IS DEAD?
Movie ID: VT3119
Movie Number: 3119
Description: The film depicts a close relationsyip between a young brother and sister and expands this relationship to include the family--mother, father, and grandfather. An auto accident, which takes the life of the brother, David, thrusts grief upon the family and plunges his sister, Sarah, into a struggle for understanding and adjustment that is the focus of the action. First Satah struggles with the fact of her brother's death, a fact that she is helped to accept by her father. Then she investigates her mother's feelings in an attempt to understand her own feelings. Next she turns to her grandfather, who provides insight into how other people feel and react. In a scene with a playmate Sarah tests the knowledge she has gained and finds that it does not relieve her loneliness or despair. In the final scene Sarah wanders to a playground where she finds an infant perched uncertainly at the top of a slide. She approaches the child, calling the same words of encouragement that her brother spoke to her at the beginning of the film. As the infant slides down toward her, Sarah smiles in recognition of her discovery. Life has triumphed.

My favorite thing about LSSU is the diversity of people you can find, despite the fact that it's a small campus! [ more ]
