Silence In The Stars, Taylor Claman

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This honors project is a feature length film that explores the concept of friendship and adversity. There are themes of race, loss, absence, adolescence and young love. The main character, Pim, loses her brother at a young age, and his absence affects her life even four years later, where the story takes place. As Pim and Marisol bond over their shared hardship, Pim learns to open up and allow herself happiness as she starts to heal from the impact of her brother's death on her life.
