Perhaps What I fear Does Not Exist

A film by Corine Shawi

Documentary, 2022

When her father becomes suddenly paralyzed, the filmmaker spends four years in between hospitals finding shelter, behind her camera, away from a family tragedy. Rehabilitation centers, VR experiments, fervent prayers, voice notes, love making and cemeteries are the record of a filmmaker’s journey trying to amend the impossible: finding absolution for a broken family by making her father walk again.
