“The things that women reclaim are often their own voice, their own values, their imagination, their clairvoyance, their stories, their ancient memories. If we go for the deeper, the darker and the less known we will touch the bones.”
— Clarissa Pinkola Estés

THE GREAT UNKNOWN is a short narrative film that explores the feminine life cycle of birth, death, transformation and rebirth. 

When a young woman experiences a miscarriage, she arrives at her grandmother’s door seeking a witness to her profound grief.  As the two women struggle to find their way through this devastating loss, the ancient power of sisterhood is revealed in the sacred bond they share. Inspired by untold stories often endured alone in silence, “The Great Unknown” offers a deep questioning of, and eventual surrender to, the vast mysteries of life.
