Death & Deathability (A Period Piece)

Directed by Maria Victoria Ponce

United States | 13 minutes | 2021

Mystified by her first period, Ceci calmly concludes she's dying. Yet she doesn't want to bother her Dad with it, so she prepares a bucket list (including her first real kiss) and her funeral, because death should be an art.
