How do we deal with Grief?

Chris Harrison, 29

Death is a universal constant for everyone; everyone can identify with loss. We all face it at different times of our lives. Having confronted dealing with death for the first time at 28, the thing that struck me the most about this period was the mundanity of it. How the constant of everyday life remained in flow. How, when I found out at 2am, I simply went back to sleep. I wanted to strip away romanticism and dramatisation in cinema when exploring grief and instead explore the mundanity of loss and the nothing moments that become everything.
