The project will involve research and filming in six locations selected for their diverse geographies (human and natural), size and cultures -

  • London

  • Hoy, Orkney

  •  Chico, California

  • Nunavut, Canada

  • Tadami, Fukushima, Japan

  • Bergen, Norway

 Staying at least 4 weeks in each , I will work with a general practitioner from the community who has agreed to allow me access to  patients so that I can talk with them individually and in groups. Immersing myself in the local community and participating in the life of its populus I will seek to understand their particular needs and challenges, and to shape a meaningful narrative about what different communities value, and how they strive to achieve a sense of wellbeing in their lives.

Birth rates are significantly higher than the Canadian average (as are the proportion of people aged under 25).Suicide rates are high and alcoholism rife.
