One of the earliest memories I have as a child, is of my grandfather. He used to pick me up and place me on his windowsill overlooking his garden and ask me, “What do you see…?”

It was quite profound, because he would encourage me to look beyond the patch of vegetables that he had, beyond the fence and beyond the trees, to the fields and to the horizon.

How you would come back on yourself if you went further and further. He would point to the stars, he’d talk about things that got me to think and question and to want to learn more about life.

It was small seeds like that, that he planted in me which grew and grew and grew.

He would explain the most profound theologies and concepts in really simplistic ways, which I could comprehend as a small child.

He would cut an apple in half and show me the five-pointed star, he would snap a carrot in half and show me fractals, show me how things form and he would explain, as above so below and as within so without.

He was absolutely a man of presence, with these great insights and a fascinating intelligence. Polish in origin, he fled to Great Britain after Germany’s invasion of Poland along with 160,000 other members of the Polish Army who were attached to the British army, alongside British forces in the 1939. He had a will and an integrity of steel, had an outstanding capacity for inspiration and shared many a story with a loving patience that I will forever remember.

His effect on my life and my development as a human being has been and continues to be, absolutely remarkable.

You see, he had an unwavering belief in the afterlife… that if you die, when we shed our cosmic space suits… our bodies, your soul actually transcends this dense vibration that we are all experiencing.

What happened after his death was just astounding, absolutely it was a new paradigm for me, of consciousness and perception of the world.

It changed me; I went through the looking-glass… I fell down a rabbit hole.

I have felt compelled and guided in making this film, which became all the more profound with the extraordinary synchronicity of receiving twenty of his cine reels, which I wasn’t aware existed.

Here in this film, I talk to my partner about him and using just a few of his reels, I have been able to scratch at the surface of an amazing man, a magical childhood and a wonderful inspiration.

The Light : AFTERLife

Using a multilayered verbal, symbolic and visual narrative, this film concentrates purely on his spiritual insights, predictions, inspirations and beliefs and poses, among many other questions…

What of the afterlife, of life AFTER death and what of this world that we inhabit within our current, limited perceptions?

My grandfather told me on his death-bed…

“If there is life after death, I will come back and I will let you know”

and as this film shows, he did indeed DO just that and much more.

Making this short film has been a deeply personal and cathartic process but my friends very kindly insist that it has a wider appeal and an important message, so if you would like to view it, then please, click on any of its images.

Personally it has mentally prepared me for the next phase in my development and direction. I have learned so many lessons and I have been on such a long journey but only now are things finally starting to make sense to me.

We are each the very opposite of ordinary, we are all, each and every one of us, extraordinary spiritual beings. Everything is about the light, everything is cyclical… and we all come to our own full circle, eventually.

Selected Reviews :-

“The lights, sounds, transitioning images, shadows make the film mysterious, suggesting the presence of something heavenly. You have succeeded to bring us into the mood of ‘life after life’. I am so much enriched by this film. I have watched several times, each viewing gave me new impressions, new shivers, discovered new lights and new messages'”

– Krisztina Bagamery Communication and Medical Marketing professional

“Wow I want to thank you for sharing this amazing tribute you made of such an interesting and inspiring and deep thinking man that your grandfather truly was. He loved you so much and still maintained that special bond with you even after his death. I loved your imagery…..the kite, the rainbow, the gardens, the books showing our curiosity in seeking knowledge of our universe and the afterlife, the chess game with the chess pieces showing how inevitably our physical lives will end. I love how you blurred and slowed down the past footage of your grandfather and your childhood self…it has a idyllic dream like quality that enforces to the watcher the loving protective relationship between you and your grandfather and also times that have past. The footage where your grandfather is lifting you high above the ground can also symbolize his enabling you to see or be aware of higher spiritual things. I’m really very impressed with what you have done.”

– Jennifer Ellis

“You ooze talent! I think a lot of people could relate to the relationship between you and your grandad. Such a powerful insight into the beliefs your grandad and yourself shared. You really know how to keep the audience captivated, such creativity. Your like a technical genius when its comes to editing ect. The spiritual meaning came across beautifully but it also aired a magical sense. Beautifully amazing David xx”

– Claire Hignett

“A very elegant and heartwarming story put together with the class that I expect and love about you but with a raw and personal feel to it, words fail me but that was very very heartwarming and at points I was nearly in tears. Well done mate, very well done.” 

– Dean Barnes Photogragher

“Truly and Utterly AMAZING my friend!! I have goosebumps and I adore you and is completely humbled by you sharing this with me. Thank You!”

    An amazing homage to a wonderful person, who was and always be with you, and that will forever bring the brightest light to your path!

    An image in your film impressed us, in a peculiar way.
    There was you, sitting on a wall, holding a kite rope. And then a woman, not in the same frame, we think that is your Grandma, holding the kite. She seems not to want to let it go, and put it into the hands of the wind.
    But, in the end, she has to let it go, free to soar, and to get close to you, bound to you.
    And we could see, in this image, when your Grandma tried to hold you, and to keep you from your beloved Grandpa, who was dying.
    But you were able to break free from her grab, and get close to him.
    We think he could be that kite, who wanted to soar in the wind, so that looking at him, you would always look at the light.
    Don’t know if that was your intention, but we loved to see it this way 🙂

      WOW !! I think it is remarkable, that you pick up on such a personal nuance… you are absolutely correct.

      This is why I placed that scene over that particular narrative and paused slightly, so that the music would reflect this notion, this otherworldly feeling and sense, together with the rainbow and the kite and the falling of the chess piece.

      I was beyond moved to have viewed this footage for the first time on the day of filming – all elements came together on that one day and whilst driving to location Stuart and I drove by three separate vivid rainbows in the Northumberland countryside – the like of which I have never seen in my life.

      How all of these disparate elements could synchronize on this day is quite surreal, amazing and astounding but there we have it – it happened.

      Thank you for being my friends – I love you both dearly and you are such true souls, you get it, you get it all in this quick fix vacuous world of insincerity selfishness and greed.

      I will always look to light – a gift from him…
