About How to Mourn the Dead
Two bros watch the dissident Antigone buried alive on national television. The spectacle inspires a misguided attempt to capture her martyrdom in art, as they glibly repurpose her story in search of some truth about the nature of suffering.

Formerly titled The Antigones: A Tragedy in Flux.
