Through his own death, a boy dreams of living forever happy and never alone. He finds another boy who wants to do the same. Part daydream, part night-terror, the film finds the boys obsessed with each other, waiting for their moment of grace, their ascent to all things golden and pure. —CamArcher.com

In the mid-2000s, Godly Boyish would air on Sundance about once a day for a week every few months and I would try to watch it each time; I would be mesmerized by it with every viewing. That he's local and I recognize a lot of the places where he films is also particularly compelling and draws a lot of power for me.
