WITH WARNING HAND I MARK TIME’S RAPID FLIGHT
FROM LIFE’S GLAD MORNING TO ITS SOLEMN NIGHT;
YET, THROUGH THE DEAR GOD’S LOVE I ALSO SHOW
THERE’S LIGHT ABOVE ME BY THE SHADE BELOW.

Roberto Mighty's earth.sky

January 25, 2016

Official trailer for Roberto Mighty’s earth.sky – a new media project about the Cemetery that combines film, historic voices, layered design, and music.

In earth.sky, audiences experience a uniquely emotional, historical journey through breathtaking landscape cinematography, high-fidelity audio, music, and photography, while hearing the inspiring, sometimes heartbreaking and often uplifting words of individuals interred at Mount Auburn Cemetery from its inception to today. As Mighty describes it “earth.sky is not about death. It is about living people. People who once walked the earth as we now do. People who live on in the memories of others.”
