Shemira

This short film takes place over one night during the ritual of Shemira, the Jewish tradition of guarding a body from death to burial. We are the invisible witness to Myers’ (John Rys Davies) intimate, private farewell to his wife — an outpouring of Myer's memories, from the seemingly insignificant and incidental, to the momentous during their six decades of marriage.
