John P - A Life Well Lived
John was turning 90 and his wife Lynne wanted to document John's long and distinguished life. With his two daughters, one in Japan and the other in Sydney (filmed via Skype and image corrected), Lynne was also interviewed by us. The resulting 48 minute-long film presented in a gift boxed DVD with photo book, presented John's memories about his childhood, his parents and their divorce, his fascination with religion from Anglicanism to Catholicism, his meeting and falling in love with Lynne when he was in his forties, fatherhood and his specialisation in psychiatry dealing with transgender patients over the 1980s and 1990s.
We would like to thank John and Lynne for their generosity in letting us play some excerpts from the film. If you are perhaps thinking about recording the life story of someone you love or indeed your own story, please contact us and don't leave it too late.
