02.    We Are Not Ones Who Say Much



“For you, I’m ready to give anything ...” 



Video8 footage / archival materials / voice memos
Short Film


We Are Not Ones Who Say Much is a documentary short film that delves into the trauma and emotional effects of cancer on interpersonal relationships, as experienced by my mum and me. The narrative unfolds through letters we wrote to each other, contrasted with Video8 footage from our first trip together post-cancer and archival photographs from the past.


Creating this film has opened a vulnerable and honest line of communication within my family, breaking through the cultural boundaries we were raised with. I hope that by watching my film, the audience will be inspired to begin their own paths of healing with their loved ones.


This film  was nominated for the MullenLowe Nova award and screened at Shoreditch Arts Club.
