A little while ago I was approached by the producers of a documentary about using my song Unnatural Progression in their film. It’s about a Vancouverite named Eva with Cystic Fibrosis and the process of her waiting for a double lung transplant. The film is really beautifully and tastefully shot, and very real.. It’s a topic I didn’t know much about, and this doc hit me pretty hard.. It’s premiering at “Hot Docs”, which I’ve heard is a very grand documentary film festival. Screenings are:
May 7th, 7:30pm (Royal Theatre, Toronto)
May 9th, 2pm (Royal Theatre, Toronto)
The following is some info from their press release:
65_RedRoses – A film by Nimisha Mukerji and Philip Lyall
Spread the word and raise awareness – a true tribute to the power of film and the internet!
Redefining the traditional scope of documentary film in an electronic age, 65_RedRoses leaves viewers with a new appreciation of life and the digital world. This personal and touching journey takes an unflinching look into the lives of Eva Markvoort and her two online friends who are all battling Cystic Fibrosis (CF) – a fatal genetic disease affecting the lungs and digestive system.
Unable to meet in person because of the spread of infections and super bugs, the girls have become each other’s lifelines through the Internet, providing unconditional love, support and understanding long after visiting hours are over. Now at a critical turning point in their lives, the film travels the distance the friends cannot go themselves, capturing the compelling and often heartbreaking realities they face, just trying to take each breath.
