A project looking at the wider impact of death and suicide and how the line between an upward or downward turn in life can be very fine. It was confirmed several months after this film was shot that Brian had taken an overdose. After Brian Berry took his own life, his brother John was given the unenviable task of clearing his brother’s flat.

While we were in the flat, I found a quality street tin full of photographs, they documented Brian’s entire life. The tin contained photographs from when his parents first met, getting married, Brian’s birth and childhood all the way through to his death. Some of those images along with new images and video work have been used in this short film.
