Synopsis: (Documentary) Truth hides in the margins and the artist's role is to point to it. The question of what happens after we die is a universal question explored by paranormal researcher and experimental composer Michael Esposito. He straddles the line between spiritual and material and asks the audience to reflect on our purpose, legacy and what our actions say about who we are.
Cast: Michael Esposito
Crew: Producers: Sharon Mooney; Seth Ekberg - DP, Justine Burchall, Editor
Production Background & Fun Facts: Initially I tried editing this myself and got frustrated with it. I scrapped the first version and started an entirely new cut which became a non-narrative film called 'signals'. That film went out into the world while the doc remained dormant until I met editor Justine Burchall, who was the missing link needed to finish the film.
