Director Statement

“My Brief Eternity represents a powerful and
poignant way of sharing the work of Wales’s
inspiring and much-loved artist Osi Rhys
Osmond – an important public intellectual
whose legacy has value for everyone. I hope
the film will help both people living with cancer
and their families, and the wider public, to
reflect on and explore the therapeutic value of
art in making sense of the world and helping to
cope with the physical and emotional
demands of cancer.”
