THE POWER OF WORDS (2022)
Director and Editor for short documentary commissioned by Status Employment, Funded by The Lottery Community Fund. The film explores the weight that words hold in our everyday lives, and how we can question, nurture, and shape our relationship with them.
I generated the concept for the film, co-running workshops with members of the Status Employment group, a charity aimed at getting people who have experienced mental health difficulties back into work.
"This has been an inspiring and moving project...What emerged was a deeply insightful discussion of the things we do that help us and those which don’t, developing into the powerful and empowering exploration of the words we use: of the choices the words express; the judgements we make of ourself and others; the choice between expressing limitations or possibilities; how the words we choose can change how we think."
