This an ancient trailer sequence of Soul Biographies as they used to be, and in many respects still are.
The ability to see through the eyes of another holds the key to empathy, and I mean ‘see’ in its most expansive of definitions. And such empathy exists as a quality that might transform the complexion of everything. This film reveals the experience of a world through the eyes of paranoid schizophrenia.
Imagine your life, or your child’s life following its course and then an abrupt and brutal turn. The sudden onset of Schizophrenia. A violent shock to what was. A loss. At a loss. And a soul rendered desolate and alone.
‘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.
From the unimaginable depths of human darkness exists an almost unintelligible shard of light. So vague that it might remain unseen. So vague that it
might remain unseen. But it’s from such a shard that hope is born.
See these few minutes as an invitation to stop in your tracks and let life itself find you. The experience of ten years old, and being rediscovered by something forgotten. I wonder what it is that life wants for you.
‘… I need to die. I so much needed to die’. These few minutes reveal something of the human experience so beautifully elemental that it might change you and you won’t know why. The film ends ‘… I always wondered what were the tears of joy, now I know’.
