William Christopher Ellis is Dead investigates the malleability of biography, portraiture, and the artist-muse relationship. Jordan Tannahill attempts to fill in the gaps of his partner Will’s life before they met and became lovers; fetishizing his humble beginnings in PEI to imagining a life for him as a Maritime hustler-turned-tragic-David Lynch-heroine who moves to the big city to make it in the movies. Filmed over the two years, it is both a love letter and a document of their relationship thus-far.
