  • Meadowlark

    2008. USA. Directed by Taylor Greeson. "When I was twelve years old, my brother was murdered, I lost my virginity to a twenty-year-old man, and I was ordained with the priesthood in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints." So begins Meadowlark, Taylor Greeson's quietly devastating self-portrait, in which the filmmaker tries to make sense of those twinned experiences of tragic loss and first love. Greeson weaves together footage shot in his native Montana and in New Mexico with home movies, taped phone conversations, newspaper clippings, forensics reports, and testimonials by family members, investigative officials, and even the murderer himself to create an autobiographical documentary that is at once mysterious, haunting, and full of grace. 77 min.
