Inspired by John Donne’s poem, The Expiration is a beautiful, evocative, depiction of two secret lovers as they accept they must reluctantly part forever. Lotus Hannon's film adaptation embraces the Renaissance concept of la petite mort that ‘to die’ was ‘to orgasm’ and explores the bittersweet moments of the last time a couple make love. theexpiration.com HUNGER TV feature and interview: hungertv.com/feature/get-your-daily-dose-of-literature-with-this-film-adapted-from-a-john-donne-poem/
