The climb poster june 17

Inspired by a heart-breaking true story, The Climb quietly explores the concept of feeling connected to someone you have lost by immersing yourself in something they love. The painful act of remembering by doing.

After the sudden death of her adventure-loving spouse, Julia decides it’s time for a fresh start abroad. Guided by an old climbing friend of her husband, she plucks up the courage to bid goodbye to her former life by doing one last thing – pushing herself to climb his favourite mountain for the first and only time.

A climb, both physical and mental.

Short Film: DYING FOR A LIVING, 13min., UK, Documentary

 

Dying for living film poster with laurels flatten 150A sensitive, contrasting portrait of Shaun Morris, a 57 year old extroverted undertaker living hand-to-mouth in Southampton. Surviving on a zero hours contract, the opportunity of a permanent job appears which could change his life dramatically.

This story is a sensitive, touching portrait about Shaun, a self-deprecating, witty undertaker who is struggling to earn enough money for basic human needs, rent, food and clothes, but who attains self-fulfillment via his noble profession of undertaking. As we follow him on his pursuit of a full-time contract with his firm, we listen to Shaun’s reflections on his life and the choices he has made. The two accomplishments he is most proud of is doing his job well and producing a well rounded 21 year old daughter. Through his story we understand our innate survival methods, our need for acceptance and validation from others and that maybe talking about our own death isn’t so bad after all.
