‘Quietly, determinedly brilliant’ **** The Stage
A delicate portrait of a person at the end of their life
Winter is a short film about Mandy King-Holmes. Mandy is 50 years old. She lives in York, has two children and four dogs. Mandy also has terminal lung cancer. This powerful, deeply affecting film – created in widescreen triptych form – approaches the ways in which Mandy’s knowledge of time running out effects how she deals with the everyday, impacts upon her plans for the future and her reflection on her own history.

“What the piece did best was to create a quiet space for reflection, and for an encounter with our neighbours, our community, who we may never otherwise meet. A vital reminder that we’re not all so very different, or so very separate after all.” The Stage
