About the event

Original Title: Sometimes I Think About Dying 

Duration: 95 minutes 

Country: United States 

Language: English 

Director(s): Rachel Lambert

In the blissless monotony of everyday life, has there ever been a time when you’ve thought about dying? Sometimes, life is just that demoralizing. In Sometimes I Think About Dying, protagonist Fran's mind is rooted someplace far away, buried in the peace of nature: sometimes, she is lying on a rotting log, sometimes surrounded by a forest. And she dies there. But upon pulling away, she returns to face the boring male bosses in the office, trivial matters, banal gossip. Living a cut-off life, she sets aside time in the evening hours for herself to watch films, drink wine, and finally unite body and spirit. Audiences are left to wonder whether those who wish most of all merely to withdraw from the world may simply be seeking out the warmth of a close embrace in secret. 


"It’s a simple story, crafted with care and skill, with an undeniable depth to its resonance."---The Seattle Times
