Event Details

Morte et Dabo holds two meanings in Latin. ‘Gift of Death’ describes a sacrifice, for the sake of humanity. ‘Death, I give you’ conveys an act of mercy, to end the suffering.

Inspired by a poem titled ‘A Dying Gay Man’, the film recites my grief at the height of the AIDS crisis. I saw my future dire with thoughts of death on so many levels and foresaw a doom that people neither recognized nor empathized with. I still remorse the loss of life from that time.
