Instructions on Parting

  • 1255 Park Avenue, Park City, UT 84060
Weaving cinéma vérité family footage with breathtaking vignettes of nature unfolding, Instructions on Parting tells an elegiac story about transformation, grief, and the essential nature of the collective human journey. As Director Amy Jenkins welcomes her first child into the world, she also must negotiate the cancer diagnoses of her mother, sister, and brother, all of whom fall ill within the same year. Crafted from Jenkins’ video journals and narrated through archived answering machine messages, Jenkins, a visual artist, turns her camera to interrogate loss. Her vulnerability leads us to a bold and daring acceptance of our own mortality and a reverence for the fleeting beauty of life.
