  • About

    Eat Flowers is a short film inspired by British artist Cig Harvey’s, Blue Violet, a book of photographs and writing that explores themes of isolation, beauty, and loss.

    Told through a series of poetic vignettes, Eat Flowers brings us into the dreamy worlds that Cig creates for her best friend Mary who is being treated for Leukemia.

    These artistic gifts create a portal for us to experience magic in unexpected places: a dahlia compost heap, a field of yellow weeds, a disco ball. Cig’s vibrant, passionate work breaks open a world we didn't know we were missing.

    Eat Flowers tells an urgent story about living, all through the language of flowers.

    After the film, join us for an afterglow at our film sponsor The Little Fleet. Enjoy a beverage of your choice for $1 off when you show your movie ticket, and chat about the film with your fellow movie-goers.
