Instructions on Parting is a feature-length documentary film currently in post-production, with a completion date of mid-2017.

SYNOPSIS: An observational portrait of family, Instructions on Parting views the thread of life from both ends. Long-distance communications via telephone message narrate the story in which cancers of the filmmaker’s mother, sister, and brother strike within the first year of herself becoming a mother. Intertwining nature and humankind in their cyclical course of birth and death, a rare and intimate view of the human condition emerges.
