This film concerns the terrifying experience of being seen. And there is no modern day pacing to carry you through this film. No drama to help frayed attention. Such is the quiet and subtle experience of the profound.
What you will see here, in this astonishing 89 seconds, is a normally reserved man speak from his very depths with no filter to the world. As his wife of many years sat just 12 feet away. Filmed in front of a ‘Soul Biographies Live’ Audience.
A Portrait Series that has set out to capture the very human experience of Schizophrenia. Such experience might have something to show us all.
This footage is revealing of what is under all Soul Biographies Inner View. Most probably a must for all drawn to the nature of these films. There is a field.

Might we all have a part to play in the life of another? This film captures the experience of an extraordinary soul. From the holocaust to the delights of the London Underground. Meet Alison. 93. Alive. Very alive.
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 the protracted and often violent Klamath Conflict over land and water there have been those who have led the difficult work towards truth and understanding. Becky is one. Her perspective relevant to all human conflict.
Conflict is universal. I imagine each conflict is reflective of all others. The Klamath Conflict is notorious. I imagine it will reflect shards of your world. If not more. And point to how we might live and work well together.
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.
