Abstract “I've been through a lot of detoxes and rehabs in my life, you know trying to come off, but then there was never any recovery after it, so when you come out you'd relapse, you know. Because trying to change a lifetime of behaviours in just a couple of months, just isn't reality.”Trish ‘Patricia' is a film developed as one of five artworks commissioned by LeftCoast, an arts organisation in Blackpool. The commissions respond to the Financial Times article (2017) titled ‘Left Behind: Can anyone save the towns the economy forgot'. It features heavily Blackpool's Director of Public Health Arif Rajpura (who suggested we summit the film) and his narrative on what is known locally as Shit Life Syndrome. Film makers Bella Riza and Emily Briselden-Waters were interested in the way the article related thepsychological effects on individuals to the physical edgeland of the UK's coastlines. After months of research they were introduced to Fulfilling Lives in Blackpool and through them they met Trish. The beauty of this film is the strength of one person's voice telling a powerful story of a hard won recovery, bringing to life the people behind the statistics. We want to show this artwork in unexpected places. It is a short (9min) film that offers a reflective moment and challenges people to think differently about the ‘service users' and ‘patients'.
