"Night Palace", a student project about a young man, Adam who, goes through several stages of grief in the wake of his girlfriend Jill’s sudden death. He first languishes alone in depression and isolates himself. In Adam’s empty home, he goes through the anger stage – taking out his frustration on inanimate objects. He recalls a casual conversation between him and Jill shortly before her death, which only serves to highlight what he has lost. Another conversation, more intimate, between the couple is seen, this time with them in bed together. Adam talks about a poem he recently read – simultaneously Adam is seen walking through a crowded street as he answers a phone call and is told about Jill’s death. He breaks down in the street, and is then seen in bed again – alone, now. Finally, Adam visits Jill’s grave, and attempts to reach some kind of acceptance.
