The art of loving and caring
A married couple learn the true meaning of loving and caring when illness strikes.
Margaret (49) was diagnosed with a terminal disease in 2011 and husband Stephen became her full time carer. Filmed over four years Where There is Life is the intimate and sensitive portrayal of one family’s courageous journey.
Where There is Life is a documentary film about love, identity, duty and the unlikeliest of power shifts within a marriage.
Directed and Produced by Gwen Isaac.
If you are based in the ‘Rapa, come to a screening Where There is Life at 6 pm, Friday, 23rd March at the Circus Cinema in Martinborough.
The director will be attendance for a Q+A. See you there!
Where There is Life’s world premiere at the 2017 New Zealand International Film Festival was a huge success.
The NZIFF committee declared, “Isaac’s film is often startling in its candour” and all sessions sold out well ahead of time.
There has been great press! Check out coverage in the Dominion Post about the story behind the film right here and listen here to a frank interview between director Gwen Isaac and Jesse Mulligan on Radio New Zealand here.
