Grief can bring us into some interesting places, develop questionable choices and above all have some bizarre effects to our mental health. While some viewers won't see themes of grief for the 2018 independent film, Starfish. We want to challenge you to look past the bizarre elements of the film and listen closely to what it has to say. We're sitting down with writer, director and composer, Al White, to discuss the creative and vulnerable process for making the movie. If that's not enough for you, we're talking in-depth about the film's symbolism, themes, structure and more.
