IN EARLY 2013 MY BROTHER LEE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH TERMINAL CANCER. WITH THE OFFER OF PALLIATIVE CARE AND A HOPE THAT CHEMO MAY PROLONG HIS LIFE, HE LOOKED ME IN THE EYES AND SAID “I AM NOT AFRAID OF DYING, LET’S FILM THE JOURNEY, OUR LAST COLLABORATION”.


Filming started around Lee’s first session of chemo and instantly became a meditative documentation of two brothers, men bound by love, battling with their faiths and fears, while being forced to confront the ultimate realities of life and death.

The film will premier in its entirety, unedited and unseen.


Paul Fisk is a multi-disciplined artist, curator and poet. His background is working with young offenders and community conflict as a therapist. In 2007 Paul decided to follow a fulltime career in the arts, and is now the founder of Subterranean Arts and the director of Festival of the Beats, both in Ipswich.
