This short film portrait bears witness to the deep and visceral experience of a devastating illness, ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. And to a live well used. Things can shift dramatically. We're not in control. Life is precious.
This film explores the extraordinary change in a relationship between Mother and Daughter following the onset of dementia. It's metaphorical for so many of the events that seek to challenge our lives. Events seemingly out of our control.
As time stood itself still, she walked towards the camera as if beckoned by something more powerful than the need to be seen. What happened next was as naked as naked can be. A courageous and utterly beautiful articulation of the sheer weight and terror of depression.
What is it that lives in the space between any two people in a relationship. This film is a portrait of a marriage, and considers the experience of appreciation, gratitude, trust and love.
Introduction Coming Soon. Singuli nobis resistere videtur, unum, sicut et nos clamamus testimonium quod sumus. Et sicut vocem de secreto per actiones, nostris omni die, ulterius non a conspectu suo.
Beyond the drama of tragic events lies the deafening, visceral and prolonged experience of grief. An experience that is seemingly untouchable by those who look in from the outside.
‘... perhaps true beauty is something that draws our attention at second glance, once the judgment of a first glance has realised it’s mistake.’ This is a film about the possibility that exists beyond judgment.
Here, anguish and love live side by side. Deserving of your full and undivided attention. If simply for the immense courage it took the subject to sit unflinchingly in front of the camera. This is a stark and perhaps achingly beautiful human encounter.
The Hospice Community at Joseph's House in Washington DC hold the belief that no one should live, or die alone. Welcome to ‘On the Edge of Life and Death’. It’s the film title, because it is just that.
'I knew everything was fleeting. It comes and it goes. We just have now. I am thankful for the gift to my existence.' An unsuspecting subject filmed in front of a live Soul Biographies audience.
The carer to a partner with a debilitating illness so often carries a vast unseen weight. A weight that can change so much. In the uncontrollable vulnerability of such a journey, one might break wide open. And in such fracture might exist vast questions.
'In those life experiences of our greatest pain and suffering also comes the greatest love and beauty, and transformation.' This is a film about sudden loss, and the experience of telling a young child that her Father had died.
In the complex landscape of Schizophrenia, I imagine Compassionate Care should not be absent. Care that is unconditional. Care that is full of hope and of possibility.
'It is like a miracle. I've got a son back that I thought I'd lost. We're probably closer now than we've ever been but it did start in a difficult place.' A film of hope and light from a seemingly dark and endless place.
‘Is it true?‘ exists as one of the most profound questions. A question you would do well to ask yourself often. Pay full attention to this few minutes with the enigmatic and mystical Byron Katie.
Carlos Enrique Araujo has experienced perhaps the greatest of all tragedies. Yet he chooses to see the world, and those in it, through a quite unexpected lens. Perhaps it points us to the whereabouts of true wealth.
Might we all hold the capacity to see light in the darkness, however that darkness chooses to appear. The stoic experience of a holocaust survivor.
As the Godfather of the Coaching industry John fills these few minutes with many provocative questions. He was the fifth person to ever sit in front of my camera. In 2005. Sir John Whitmore. 1937 – 2017.
