Two Gates of Sleep is a debut feature film by Alistar Banks Griffin about two brothers fulfilling their mother’s burial request. Official synopsis as follows:

“Somewhere on the Mississippi-Louisiana border, brothers Jack and Louis prepare for their mother’s imminent death. Their communication limited to glances, they hunt a gorgeous animal, cook a special meal and share last moments of quiet intimacy with the woman who bore them. Once she succumbs, they ignore society’s expectations and undertake an arduous journey to bury her along the riverbank. Ants swarm in the dirt, trees form a green cathedral and the brothers step deeper into the muddy river. This visual meditation on nature, death and tradition paints a shattering portrait of a family overcoming extraordinary circumstances to honor a final request.”
