Reimagining Death, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is a series of free film screenings which present interesting perspectives on our common mortality. Each screening is introduced by a local expert, and followed by a discussion of the film.

Twenty years after their last holiday at a fading vacation resort, Sophie reflects on the rare time spent with her loving and idealistic father Calum (Paul Mescal, in an Oscar-nominated performance). At 11-years-old, as the world of adolescence creeps into Sophie's view, Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood. Sophie's recollections become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn't.

Conversation hosted by Dr. Matt Strohl (Philosophy)
