Now and at the Hour
by Emily Holt & Braden Van Dragt
A short film (2017) exploring the need, in the wake of traumatic loss, for what some critics and poets have called or enacted melancholic, immersive mourning, a concept and form particularly shaped by sectarian conflict in Northern Ireland. Set in her father’s hometown, the film traces the artist's responses to the loss of her mother and raises questions about the connection between the health of a country and the health of the women who live there.
