an Award-Winning Film by Rachel Fowler



A love letter to those comfortable with others grief and pain, STILLNESS follows Rose, a photographer who comes to a hospital to take remembrance photography of a family who have just lost their newborn.


Writer and director Rachel Fowler’s expresses in her own words,

“I want to spark a conversation about grief and love, and the all too common occurrence of stillbirths. There is a stigma to taking these photos, and there shouldn’t be. These babies are part of a family, and these photos are evidence of a life. We can have the courage to include them in our stories, and we can have the grace to hold that space for those in pain.”
