THE GIFT OF ILLNESS
DOCUMENTARY & CAMPAIGN (IN PRE-PRODUCTION)
What if illness takes over your life? Do we dare to reflect and look deeper into its cause? In this documentary, filmmaker Casper Boom explores how people, like himself, who were confronted with illness found physical healing by investigating their inner state. He takes you on a journey to discover how trauma shapes us, explore its effect on the body and how to free yourself of it, so healing can happen naturally from within. He speaks with different people who not only have found healing from illnesses that are known as incurable, but also experienced illness as a wake-up call to open them up to a fuller life. Discover how to decipher the message your body is sending, so you can find the gift of illness for yourself.

TUMI Ghana is a non-profit organisation that creates sustainable income opportunities for underprivileged women in Kumasi, Ghana. Due to poverty and early motherhood, girls often do not have the chance to go to school. Lacking employable skills and a steady income, they struggle to feel any control over their own lives. At TUMI Ghana, they get the opportunity to learn a skill which allows them to earn their own income and empowers them to feel confident and in control.
Boom Studio has made several films to portray the work of Tumi Ghana.
