“there is a kind of storm
in losing the words
in losing your name”

49th Day takes us to a cemetery in Việt Nam, where a young woman makes offerings and performs rituals for her deceased grandmother. A poetic investigation of intergenerational trauma and displacement, this piece is a love-letter to elders and grandparents everywhere.
