'Coming to Term' documents my personal response to my father's illness and death. I combined home footage (originally shot on Super 8 magnetic tape) from my childhood with HDV footage of a ritualistic burial of the objects I found on the bedside table of my father's hospital room. The making of the film had an ultimately cathartic effect on me, and I hope that it will help others who have lost family members to cancer.
