LETTERS: The Art of Grieving is an epistolary documentary (a documentary film in a letter format), about the powerful transformations of grief into art. The film explores the art that intertwines with the lives of three women artists: a poet and fiber artist who lost her husband to dementia, a sketch artist whose 9-week-old son died unexpectedly, and a young painter who lost her mother to brain cancer. In a form of an intimate cinematic meditation, the film examines their art as a love letter to the ones they have lost.
