The Sirens by Sarah Adina Smith is an exquisite short film about two sisters who take their terminally-ill sister to die peacefully at a suicide compound on a mysterious lake. I saw the trailer earlier this year and was haunted by writer and director Smith’s quiet pacing and painterly compositions. The full 10 minute or so short was finally released on itunes so yesterday I fell head first into her mystical, emotional universe and came out stunned, moved and inspired. Goose bump material for anyone who doesn’t mind delving into the sweet and tragic journey of loving and letting go. We all have to do it someday, so why not tell the story beautifully. Thanks Sarah!
