An Elephant in the Room
Directed by Katrine Philp
Produced by Katrine A. Sahlstrøm | Good Company Pictures
When a child loses a parent, their world turns upside down. Death may come suddenly or slowly, violently or peacefully, but it leaves a pain that the child has never felt before. At Good Grief in New Jersey, groups of children meet to act out, adapt, and through play, come to understand how to live with grief. The feelings are heavy as a mountain, but they help you understand what has happened, and that death is irreversible.
An Elephant in the Room is a feature documentary, that tells the story of a group of children, who through alternative measures learn to overcome the loss of a parent or sibling.
