Life:Moving

Using Film to change understandings of dying

 

Exploring the power of film to communicate the meaningful and honest experiences of those affected by terminal illness

About Life:Moving

The Life: Moving project is a unique collaboration between researchers, photographer and film-maker Briony Campbell, and hospice patients that explores the power of film to communicate the meaningful and honest experiences of those affected by terminal illness.

Focusing on the needs of people with a terminal illness, their families, communities and the organisations that support them, participants were given the skills and support to create audio-
visual stories. These stories provide a range of benefits for the individuals taking part but also for wider understandings of the needs of these groups. They also tell us about the potential of film to shift attitudes about human vulnerability
