Tears Need Rest. Life without my sister

A portrait frame with a photograph of a lost sister. The tall trees of a dense Nordic forest on a summer afternoon. Hyperrealistic drawings of hands, birds and human bodies in motion.

The above are a few black and white snippets shown in this fleeting short film about a young Norwegian girl who has decided to drain the pain of losing her sister. After all, tears also have to rest at some point.
