LATER is a short documentary film about the late effects of childhood cancer. I am directing this film with Annick Sickinghe, who had lymphoma when she was fourteen years old.
In LATER, Annick investigates her own coping process, which leads her to talk to peers who also suffered from childhood cancer. How do these people look back at their period of illness after 10, 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years? How does such a violent experience affect the rest of your life?
These interviews are complemented by a series of animations, poems and music, offering an insight into Annick's emotional journey.
LATER is currently in production and will have a theatrical release in 2022.
