MY BRIEF ETERNITY
An original commission from Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres to document the experiences of much-loved and respected artist Osi Rhys Osmond during the last weeks of his life. The film and artwork are intended to raise awareness of the therapeutic value of art in dealing with cancer, and Osi's legacy. Shot on location in Llansteffan, Wales, on Canon 5D MkIII and Sony FS7 over one month.
In association with: Maggie’s Cancer Caring Charity and University of Wales Trinity Saint David.
"This is a powerful film in which we see the artist, Osi Rhys Osmond, making a painting both delicate and delightful, while confronting his imminent death. It is very moving."
Sandy Nairne, curator and writer, Chair of the Maggie's Art Group
