Note from the Director: Connor Allen Smith
I lost my grandfather in 2017. It was part of a slew of big life happenings: moving from Arkansas to Chicago, getting married. And as his passing lingered with me, I found myself meditating on what it was that I missed... I often recalled simple memories. Him and I driving around Dallas, while he verbally meandered, and I just soaked it all in. 'Phos' became a channel for this bereaving. A small story about what slices of life and specificities that we cling to when we lose someone we love.
