Some choose therapy to process grief; others make movies. In this collection of short films, four filmmakers take to the camera to explore, frame by frame, the loss of youth, of friends, of siblings and parents and, for one Italian village, of life as it once was.

Ben Donateo’s exquisite film is a slow portrait of Filippa di Mesoraca, a village in southern Italy’s Calabria region. Hit by the migration of its youth to the north, Burnt. Land of Fire captures what’s left of the village’s land, homes and residents.
