About the Film

"Object of Grief" is a short film that examines the movement of the female body through a day lived with grief. The spaciousness of the work allows all who have experienced loss to enter into private moments of grief that are deconstructed and shared through the lens of poetry, dance, music, and film. The cyclical feeling that the film creates will leave the audience considering compassion for themselves and others who go day in, and day out, carrying loss while trying to heal under the burden of grief.

About the Director

Audrey Ringlein is an interdisciplinary artist who is fascinated by the human spirit. As a choreographer, she creates in flow to express with the physical body when words fall short. As a writer, she uses poetry to examine her own experiences, which become the framework for her movement explorations. As a director, she enjoys working with her friends and highlighting their talents as they enter into her creative process. Audrey sees little separation between daily life and artistic expression. Her work draws the audience in by creating a space that is intimate, yet universally accessible. Her current work "Object of Grief" is driven by a series of poems that she wrote while processing the loss of a good friend. Audrey does not shy away from the ugly and uncomfortable realities of grieving in a society that endlessly requires perfection from women. Her play with silence and sound is informed by her relationship to American Sign Language, which was how she communicated with her deaf grandparents before they passed. Audrey's movement preferences mimic the crashing of waves on a beach - an influence of nature that always centers Audrey and helps her become truly present. By creating this deeply personal film, she aims to encourage change in the hearts of the viewer, so that they might stay present and compassionate as they carry their "Object of Grief" through each moment of the day.
