Pin It

The makers of award-winning short documentary “Bright Spot” announce the premiere of their new documentary DISCONNECTED to be screened at the Cayman International Film Festival (CayFilm).

Following the success of their first documentary, local film-makers Tamer Soliman, Rob Tyler, Jeremy Walton & Stephen Price have teamed up with Neville Hicks and Oliver Lindsay as executive producers to make a film that promises to make you think about your life, your health and your wellbeing in a completely different way.

Below is a synopsis of the film as it appears on the CayFilm website (http://www.cayfilm.com/festival-events/):

Our time has been called the age of loneliness. Immersed in our own echo chambers, our very health is being impacted by social isolation. Despite advances in technology, living conditions, education and healthcare, we seem to be unhappier than ever. At the same time, modern urban lifestyles are destroying our sense of community.

Why are we all so disconnected? Making a link between the various causes, this film asks what community wellbeing means to us and why it even matters. On a journey through the cities of North America, wellness expert Tamer Soliman learns that where we choose to live, what we choose to value, and with whom we choose to spend our time can have a profound impact on our health and happiness.
Meeting with not only experts but also ordinary people on the streets of Toronto, Vancouver and Los Angeles, Tamer discovers the truth in that old nursery rhyme: “The more we get together the happier we’ll be”.

Below are details for when, where and how to see the film:

WHEN: Saturday July 1st from 3:00 – 4:00pm, including a Q&A session with the producers
WHERE: Ballroom 2 at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman
HOW: tickets can be purchased online via the CayFilm website at www.cayfilm.com/tickets/
