Amy Hardie

I am a documentary film-maker with several international awards, committed to using documentaries as an intervention in health and well-being.

My first documentary feature The Edge of Dreaming, was a compelling personal encounter with death, translated into 14 languages and screened in psycho-analysis and mind-body conferences: (Grand Jury Prize, Kiev International Film Festival). I graduated from the National Film and Television School in 1990 with the BP Expo prize for best student documentary (Kafi’s Story). My research interests include close collaborative work with research scientists and health professionals (Stem Cell Revolutions )(Tam Dalyell medal, and Best Documentary Milan).
