By Emma Rozanski / 15 min / United Kingdom / 2012 / Drama



A young girl pitches her tent on her father’s grave. Her mother crams the pantry full and cuts herself off from her daughter, covering her floor in wilted funeral flowers. Mother and daughter have stopped communicating and now live separate lives, each fending for themselves as best they can. They have to learn how to live with each other after their great loss but first have to remember that they still have each other. Campers is about how people develop eccentricities to illuminate the shadow of grief.
