Documentary Film’s Interactive Site Increases Emotional Resonance
Dreams of a Life, a documentary about a woman who was discovered 3 years after she died, uses an sister website to connect audiences with the subject of the film.
In 2003 the body of the woman Joyce Vincent was discovered in her London flat three years after she had died. A woman with an apparently vibrant life full of family and friends was seemingly forgotten about as somehow nobody realized she had died. This is the subject of a new documentary film Dreams of a Life premiering in the UK on December 16th directed by Carol Morley. The film explores how something like this could have happened through dramatic recreations and comprehensive interviews with people who knew her when she was alive.
