The documentary This Film is About Compassion documents relationships experienced in health and human service organizations.

The film, in four chapters, paints a portrait of the journey toward compassion through the eyes of residents of a personal care home, patients in a palliative care unit, individuals taking part in a bereavement group and individuals living with developmental disabilities, their family members and caregivers. The film and guided discussions ask what it takes to authentically support and renew compassionate practices and how this human capacity and need can best be nurtured. The film is designed to acknowledge both the joys and the struggles of compassion to move us to positive action within our environments.

This Film is About Compassion was commissioned by the Catholic Health Corporation of Manitoba.
