Director's Statement

My grandfather died when I was 2 years old. He was my favorite person at the time. I asked my mom “Where did Papa go?” And she answered, “He smoked, and then he died.” I have always had a disgust for the act of smoking and really any drug use but thankfully it has given me a curiosity for why people would start a drug habit to begin with. Find out some interesting commonalities in the testimonies these total strangers give over in this short Doc.

Director's Bio

Barbara Heller can often be found on the street talking to strangers about deep subjects while her iPhone soaks up all of the magic. She has a deep curiosity for what makes people turn away from community and quiet hurt themselves. She has a podcast which tackles the subjects of “Forgiveness” and “Tools for How to Live a Life of Freedom” called See One Beautiful Soul. All of her films and interviews seek to understand how we can all become more connected to ourselves, each other, and to Source.
