GONE BEYOND from D A V I D on Vimeo.
'They say, beware of a man's shadow and a bee's sting… that life cannot vanish without reaching the destiny of fate, and two may become enemies… when their ideas are the same…. Beware he, who has gone beyond, to his God Within'.
Track 'Gone Beyond' written and performed by RM Isaiah and taken from his album 'The Future Is Not What It Used To Be' www.rmisaiah.bandcamp.com/
A personal documentary film, set in three parts, that uses outtakes, archive footage and a spoken narrative – to profile a lifelong relationship with the camera and convey my thoughts and feelings on why I am disengaging from a career in photography, to stick a metaphorical flag into the sand at this waypoint – to symbolise how I took ownership of a deep depression and inverted that dark gift into a blessing.

The Light : AFTERLife from David V Barron on Vimeo.
“My late grandfather was a man of presence, with great insight and 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 1939.
He had a will and 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.
Making this film was a deeply personal and cathartic process and has mentally prepared me for the next phase in my personal development and direction. I have felt compelled and guided to make it, which became all the more profound with the 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 those reels, I have been able to scratch at the surface of an extraordinary man.
This film concentrates purely on his spiritual insights and beliefs and poses the question, what of the afterlife, of life AFTER death?”
