ABOUT THE PROJECT
Writing obituaries for a local newspaper to keep the wolf from the door, coupled with the complete avoidance of his own mother's death – universally rejected novelist Harvey Harris is feeling more distanced than ever from the world and those who surround him. An attempt to ease his guilt leads Harvey to sneaking into the very funerals he writes about, where a chance meeting of a strong-willed woman named Mona Miller will force him to confront his greatest fears about loss and rejection and how to find a way to connect through the most severe forms of disconnection.
Last Flowers was created at the request of the William Morris Agency to be a twenty minute promotional piece. The film premiered in Italy and was nominated for Leo Awards in Best Acting (Joseph May) and Best Screenwriting (CJ Wallis) catagory.
