We Have Decided Not to Die is a transcendental and metaphorical short film written, directed and produced by Daniel Askill. It explores the idea of ritual as something of the highest spiritual significance.  It forces you to question the possibility of there being new life after death, because most of us don’t know the answer.  Askill meticulously edits  three looping rituals in precise synchronicity with music composed by his father. In how he plays with his direction of movement, going forwards and backwards at different frame rates, he creates for us a profound, cohesive relationship between sound and movement, giving great meaning to transformation and our existence as human beings. Take a moment to read a great interview conducted by Sara Runcie, the AFC Film Development Administration Officer at the We Have Decided Not To Die website. It’s superb. Dixie Rose
