A woman has decided to move from one “state of being” to another. She spends the last day of her current “incarnation” on a beach, observing the people around her. Their activities become a poetic metaphor for the human condition and the transience of life.
The film was shot on Sagg Main Beach in Sagaponack, Long Island, with Megan Chaskey as the lead. A trained Buddhist, she adds to the project a profound spiritual dimension.
This following documentary had no scenes filmed on LI, however, I felt it was important to show this on the site because Kenny is a terrific filmmaker!

Miss Mann’s film deals with personal, national and universal issues of identity, as illustrated by the lives of her parents, who arrived in Kenya in 1942 as Jewish refugees from Poland and Romania. The story is set against the backdrop of the Mau Mau rebellion of the 1950s and Kenya’s Independence in 1963.
