“The story of how my grandparents met and maintained a marriage of over 50 years has always fascinated me. This film was produced during a two week period I spent with Noreen after Dean’s passing. It felt important to me to record her story while I still had the opportunity, and there was something about that particular moment in time, when Noreen was transitioning into a new stage in life after the loss of such a profound relationship, that perfectly held the emotional complexity of life, love, and loss all at once.”
