Local Sightings 2018 – Chronic Means Forever

9/29/2018 | Northwest Film Forum

Film & Media Arts Capitol Hill/Central District

Kadazia Allen-Perry’s autobiographical documentary follows her life and struggle against cystic fibrosis and the cold lack of sympathy from others, which has pushed her deep into a complex emotional contemplation of herself and her otherness. At one point jubilantly declaring herself an “alien,” she reflects on the complexity of growing up as a black woman condemned to a chronic illness. While her light does shine through, this film spares none of the truth of the chronic pain that characterizes her life.
