Last Summer In The Garden

2016, bekky O’Neil, Canada, 4 min.

This poetic and philosophical rumination on nature, seasons, cycles, and the unavoidable speed bumps in the road of life uses a first-person narrative and a wash of impressionistic colors in its evocation of gardens, both real and metaphorical. From dead cats and howling coyotes to the miracle of growth and healing, LAST SUMMER IN THE GARDEN recounts one woman’s journey through a joyful, fearful time of death and rebirth.
