ANIMA, a film by Colm Mullen exploring visual artist Marie Brett’s research on death and care, was funded through the 2016 artsandhealth.ie Documentation Bursary.
In ANIMA, Marie Brett explores questions relating to our understanding of death and dying in contemporary Ireland through personal accounts and interviews with scholars and healthcare professionals. The conversations span medical, philosophical, folkloric and legal perspectives, offering an insight into the intimate and privileged moments of the artist/participant encounter.
Marie’s research project Whispers? took place in collaboration with St Francis Hospice, UCD School of Social Sciences and Law and The National Folklore Collection.
