It is said that if you look at the sea long enough, scenes from the past come back to life (Saidiya Hartman, Lose Your Mother). For most of us, we don’t have the luxury of taking in that sea view on the regular. In fact, for most of us, it’s quite the opposite – concrete jungles, deadlines, intense screen time, hustler’s mentality, go go go, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead”. Elder Strolls (Elder Scrolls) explores grief through Marcel Stewart’s relationship with his grandad, Albert Stewart. “How do we say goodbye to loved ones who’ve died? How do we reconcile with unsaid resentments? When is it time to let go?”
