Tarkio Balloon


World Premiere

In 1985, at two-months old, Dane Morgan Bernhard died of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in a small town called Tarkio, Missouri. 25 years later, his brother Torben Bernhard (who was two years old when his brother died) has created a loving homage to his lost brother.  Shot on 8MM film on a drive from Utah to the Tarkio cemetery,  and using an audio interview recorded years earlier with his mother, Bernhard paints a poetic portrait of his family’s loss and explores a child’s perspective of death and mourning.
Filmmaker is in attendance.
