GRAVE GOODS

Directed by Leslie Tai
SHORT DOCUMENTARY 12 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE GRAVE GOODS
During her lifetime, Leslie Tai’s grandmother amassed a mammoth collection of fashion, accessories, decorative objects and homewares. When she died, she took some of her things with her into the afterlife, but what happens to the things she left behind? Leslie Tai imagines the luscious visual world in which these objects existed in her grandmother’s mind—precious, larger-than-life, quirky, glamorous and beautiful—as she searches for her grandmother’s mark on her life.
