A Documentary Opportunity
Military life is all about waiting. It is filled with waiting - waiting to hear if you are posted, waiting to hear if you are going to experience another deployment, waiting to hear if they are safe through the deployment, waiting to see if they are damaged after the deployment, waiting to hear if they will be promoted and then your life will change again, waiting to see if your children adjust, waiting to hear from family and friends that don't live anywhere near you, and so on and so on. No one told me about the waiting.
There is now an opportunity to be heard! A Toronto film maker is looking to do documentary on waiting and would like some stories from military families...
The Waiting Room chronicles our attitudes, behaviours and cultural values attached to waiting. Through peoples’ stories and interviews, the documentary examines the profound effect waiting has on our lives and gives us a front row seat in the world of waiting rooms, as we meet the people in them and follow their unfolding stories.
For the documentary, Makin’ Movies award-winning director Maureen Judge would like to talk to women and men who spouses are deployed overseas about what it is like for them waiting for their spouses to return home. The documentary is being developed in association with TVO and the National Film Board of Canada.
