My Hurricane (2004)
This dreamy, fractured drama begins with the steady breathing of sleep. A woman recalls the recent death of her lover. The remembered rhythms of his sleep build into the hurricane winds that pounded Nova Scotia in September 2003. The violent squall matches the turbulence of her life.
Told in narrative fragments, layered with whispers, an emergency radio broadcast, the lonely whistles of wind and the savage crack of falling branches, My Hurricane becomes a tale of a woman overcome by storm, but in its lull, surfacing.
