When someone has dementia or Alzheimer’s it can be hard to have new conversations. Filmmaker Brett Chapman decided to make something to help his mother and grandmother with this – the results were something quite special.
Brett Chapman is a filmmaker based in the north of England. Obsessed with the romance of cinema from an early age his work seeks to toe the line between life imitating art and art borrowing from life. He originally studied journalism before moving first into making music videos and then working on other people's features. He's now developing his own projects with his new short film, The Residue of a Relationship - the first such project to truly represent his voice and point of view.
