Winner of the AHRC research in film Utopia award
This film was made as part of a research project about the utopianism of recovery - the idea that recovery requires the daily renewal of hope. It documents artist Cristina Nunez's use of self portraiture with a group of people in longer term recovery and captures their ambitions to 'feel and be felt by other feeling people'. The research project was led by Amanda Ravetz of Manchester School of Art, MMU, in partnership with Mark Prest, founding director of PORe (Portraits of Recovery), GMRF and in2recovery, and funded by the AHRC through the Connected Communities programme.
