These thoughts led me to question the idea of talking to people who do know (roughly) how much time they have left on earth. What if I could talk to people with 'known mortality' about time. Their life, perceptions of time and how that has been shifted by their knowledge.
The Life I Didn’t Live is another result of this film experiment; a short, indie documentary made as part on my ongoing experiment exploring how people aware of their own mortality perceive their life and time.
In it, retired policeman and art lover, Peter Murray, takes us through his extraordinary life, seen through the lens of two of his paintings - one featuring highlights of his lived life, the other filled with moments he wish had happened, but didn’t.
This film is currently being submitted to festivals but I’m happy to send a private link if you’d like to watch.
