Filmed in New Jersey and winner of the Documentary Feature Competition at the 2020 SXSW Film Festival, Katrine Philp’s BEAUTIFUL SOMETHING LEFT BEHIND explores the way in which children process the loss of a parent or sibling. At Good Grief groups, children meet with one another and with counselors to to act out, adapt, and through play, come to understand how to live with grief. During this process they begin to understand the permanence of loss and to find comfort in the experience of others, creating compassionate, moving territory for storytelling. Filled with thoughtful, touching moments of support and a hopeful perspective on the possibilities of moving forward, BEAUTIFUL SOMETHING LEFT BEHIND examines loss with empathy and compassion.
