Watch ‘Dreams Of A Life’

I am still haunted by Dreams Of A Life , a documentary about British Caribbean woman Joyce Carol Vincent. I remember reading about the film on the blog, Shadow and Act, and I found it on Hulu Plus last night.

Joyce Vincent died in 2003 in her London apartment with Christmas presents surrounding her, but was not found until three years after. It is a film by Carol Markey that is a documentary with interviews from friends and acquaintances. There are imagined scenes of Joyce’s life that are portrayed by actress Zawe Ashton.  Zawe Ashton is one of the stars of the British sitcom, “Fresh Meat”. The movie is sad and makes you realize that we all die alone.
