Graphs, spreadsheets and statistics offer an insight to system change, but an emotional connection with a character takes the understanding to a deeper level that can elicit innovative thinking.
In 2012 Chris Godwin worked with Guys and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust to produce Barbara’s Story, a series of behaviour change dramas about dementia. The huge success of Barbara’s Story led Chris to make films on a whole range of patient pathways, including child abuse; post natal depression; and end of life care.
Chris’ work utilises the power of empathy: enabling people to walk in someone else’s shoes connecting emotionally with people in different situations and providing a platform for debate and discussion. The films are useful for any staff member at any level of an organisation.
During the Edge Talk Chris will demonstrate how connecting with an audience through film drama can have long lasting and transformative effect on behaviour at all levels.
To view an example of Chris’ work, please see the trailer for Deafening Silence (trigger warning: this is a film about stillbirth).
