Where There is Life

Film (Trailer) – 2017

For me, MND is the worst way I can imagine dying as your body betrays you completely but your mind remains intact.  I’ve seen Margaret transcend this prison by allowing herself to soar to amazing heights intellectually and emotionally, she proclaims the illness has been the making of her. And that isn’t to say Margaret doesn’t fear and question, because she does, constantly. Even swearing like a sailor when all she has is tiny head movement into a talking keyboard.
– Director Gwen Isaac
You sort of get to know [Margaret] in reverse, but really it's Steven's journey through the art of caregiving in their marriage, a very intimate portrayal of a marriage. And then, of course, their ten-year-old daughter reacting to whats happening around her.
– Director Gwen Isaac, in an interview with Radio New Zealand's Jesse Mulligan, 3 August 2017
