Excerpt

S.T.T.L (Sit tibi terra levis, or "May the earth rest lightly on you") is a short video about the way we die. As human death is typically hidden from everyday life we often imagine it occurring as an abrupt event. A hospice volunteer describes the most likely scenario of my life's end.

Selected screenings and exhibitions:

WRESTLE, LAUNCH F18, New York

A Letter to the Living, IMAGES FESTIVAL, Toronto

Impakt Festival, Utrecht

TIME'S UP!, VideoDUMBO, New York
