Music gives expression to our hearts when words are often not enough.
During her four years of filming at the hospice, filmmaker Amy Hardie found the patients’ desire to sing gave her an insight into who they were in a way that interviews never could.
“I had committed to making a patient-led documentary but had never imagined that what the patients would most want to do would be to sing! I loved it.”
Singing is a powerful method of communication. It’s a form of expression that goes way beyond words- so it’s no surprise that it ended up becoming a supportive thread throughout the film.
