This project is a personal documentary of my family’s past and how addiction changed our lives forever.

I remember the day in March 2012 that our life altered. What I believed to be the worst thing that could possibly happen in my life, turned out to also be the best thing that has ever happened. It has been said ‘everything happens for a reason’ and this short moving image piece is an authentic documentary showing how true this statement is.

Through recording both audio and visuals, in the style of an interview with different members of my close family, alongside researching into the statistics behind addiction and reminiscing over past memories, I have formed a personal moving image piece to tell this story of events.
