Road Elegy (2016)

Fifteen years ago, my mother received a devastating phone call: her identical twin and best friend had died. Together, we drive from our home in the Bay Area to Arizona, to visit her grave for the first time in over a decade. As we pass lush rolling hills and the dry desert landscape, she talks about her sister: about their past and the future they didn’t have. Road Elegy is a visually striking and poetic documentary about a mother and daughter, an 18-hour road trip, and the inability to heal.
