DESERT PSALM - NIGHT TEACHER, 9min., USA
Directed by Lilly Bechtel, Cat Rider, Zap McConnell
Inspired by “Women Who Run With the Wolves,” the cult classic feminist book by Clarissa Pinkola Estés, this short film explores themes of myth, transformation and power and feminine instinct. The call to a more empowered relationship to grief shows up in the way of many bones, one 50’s pink payphone in the forest, and many pig skulls from a local butcher strung across the apparition of La Loba, or Bone Woman, who drags them around like the weight of ancestral womanhood and modern day gender expectations.
