Film Production

Susan Heimsoth has always been interested in making film. In 2007, she was the recipient of the Don S. Williams Award for artists in North Vancouver. The purpose of this grant was to make Susan’s first film, BCC (Blind Carbon Copy). This film was part of a larger film concept.

Where is myMind?

Where Is My Mind (2021) is a short film about survivors of trauma. The story recognizes how we may be attempting to live a “normal” life, when disturbing events remain with us from the past. This film recognizes those moments when we may appear present, but in fact we have gone for a brief second to another place and time. A word, a sound, a person, a place, or an image may trigger a memory. Despite years of therapy and other forms of healing, some survivors of trauma may not fully recover. This film reflects on what we all carry with us in our body, mind, and spirit. It reminds us to be in a place without judgement of others. Many people function in the world, plagued by distressing and pervasive memories of the past. Few of us escape trauma in our own lives. When we meet someone, we never know what they have been through. Even those that we know very well may be burdened with past events that are never revealed.

MadWorld

A Powerful Demonstration of Art and Collaboration our recent film (2020), Mad World, was created to express some of the issues around Covid 19 pandemic.  There is a disconnect between Covid protocols (wearing masks and physical distancing) versus nature: connection with the world and each other. To us, it is a Mad World that we are living in.

SacredCurrents

Susan went on to create her second film, Sacred Currents in 2008.This film looks at some of the ways in which people pray or connect to a higher power. The soundtrack includes First Nations song and drumming, along with a gospel song entitled: Down in the River to Pray. It is a short film that reflects on how we all pray in our own way, and how people often seek a connection to God in whatever form He is perceived to be.

BlindCarbon Copy

This film is seen through the eyes of a young woman who reflects on her life purpose. In the film, she dreams about several facets of her life by going through doors in her mind. Each door leads her to a different aspect of her life. In the film BCC: the lead character arrives at work. She floats in on the office door, meets her co-workers on the sand, gets tangled up in work stress, and is then taken back out to sea on the same door. The theme is nature versus the workplace, the meaning of life and the meaningless work that we sometimes do to survive.
