A haunting audio-visual exploration of love and mourning by director Arnaldo Iñigo. Inspired by the life of Iñigo’s grandmother, who lost 2 children in separate tragic accidents, “Absence” is set to two tracks — “Flesh and Bone” by Black Math and Luke Atencio’s “A ghost,” featuring spoken word by Tom O’Bedlam. As Iñigo explains, the film is a presentation of grief as a process of reflection and acceptance, chronicling the need to reconcile with the purpose of life:

“There’s nothing more tragic than the sudden death of a child, an event that causes bereft, heartbreak and a disruption in the natural law and order of life. This reversed order places the human mind in extreme sorrow as it carries the loss of innocence, the death of the most vulnerable and dependent, it signifies the loss of future, of hopes and dreams, of new strength.”
