As a filmmaker I worked on trauma, loss and mourning in Cambodia from to , and made a participatory documentary with survivors of the Khmer Rouge Regime. At this time I too experienced violent death in an immediate and personal way, when my beloved partner was killed in an accident. In this article, drafted after I returned from that first visit, I reflect on this private loss, and attempt to analyse and transform it creatively through a public process in which emotions are re-appropriated. What a beautiful light was welcoming us in the village, how warm and sweet to see the old women and accept their condolences, how sad, how complicated, and how funny too. It is so curious to watch this material. It is the same place, often the same light, and the same people like in those days… but something is missing.

As a group, it was decided that this would form the basis of a self improving service centred around what Greg needed to get out of the support.

Greg would communicate to his care manager about what he liked, and what he disliked, what he though was going well, and what he thought could be improved; and overall what he wanted.
