New Zealand 2010 / 70min.
Director Dean Easterbrook. Producers Kimberley Buchanan, Martyn Element, Qiujing Wong.
Director Easterbrook and partner producer, Quijing Wong, have followed up their previous independent feature "A Grandmotherís Tribe" with The Jade Bell Story.
'I can save lives but I can’t do it alone', is the tragic yet inspiring story of one man’s quest to get his life back after overdosing from a near-lethal injection of heroin and cocaine.
Jade Bell is a mute, blind and disabled man but his disability has not held him back from facing the demons of his past by traveling to schools and prisons telling his gritty and powerful story firsthand. Bell also worked with musicians to produce an album that promotes creativity over drug use.
By saving lives, Jade believes that one day he might get his own life back. Beautifully shot, Easterbrook and Wong continue their quest to tell human and compelling films of transformation and social change.
