SHORT FILM SYNOPSIS:
The Septemberists is a thirty minute black and white film that chronicles the preparations and execution of traditional rites of passage. The musical score takes the place of dialogue. Set on a farm, the refined Amish like community of boys live an existence removed from society. Each group moves in silent unison as they carry out their tasks. The gathered materials become the ingredients used to fulfill ceremonial obligations.
