An art teacher and her recovery class are commissioned to make the backdrop for a professional dance performance. As a documentary film crew records the process, they uncover the incredible personal stories of the students and their battles with mental illness. These experiences not only mould and transform the final performance, but also their lives and the life of their teacher.
Pieces is an independent feature film commissioned by the not-for-profit Western Australian-based mental health organisation HelpingMinds. HelpingMinds provides services and support for mental health carers and people living with mental health challenges. The organisation has developed a long-standing relationship with film director Martin Wilson following their collaboration on the 2017 mental health-themed documentary series Real Stories. Additional funding support was made available by Maria Halphen, founder of the Philippe & Maria Halphen Foundation, Meeting For Minds and Creative Partnerships Australia through the Australian Cultural Fund. Pieces was nominated for two Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards in 2022; Best Indie Film and Best Costume Design in Film and for an Australian Directors’ Guild Award for Best Direction in Narrative Feature Under $1m.
