Still Breathing

The tension – this films seems to say – between consolation that is found in love and companionship and in the knowledge that we do not suffer alone, and the sense of radical aloneness that companionship and love seem unable to reach, is at the heart of our mortal identity.                       – Raimond Gaita

                                                          

Still Breathing is a 26 minute documentary about the life of a young man, Rob Fraser, who has cystic fibrosis. It is told with his narration and using images of the beauty of nature.
