Breathtaking Screening - In Loving Memory of Richard Mullen


Breathtaking is a documentary produced and directed by Kathleen Mullen (Richard Mullen’s daughter, a Toronto filmmaker). It takes on the asbestos industry through a moving and personal investigation into her father’s asbestos-related death and the current present-day use of asbestos in Canada and internationally. With moving clips of her dying father’s legal testimony, family photos and Super 8 home movies as a narrative springboard, Mullen takes the audience on an investigative journey from her family’s home in British Columbia to Quebec, India and Detroit, painting a global, yet still personal picture of the many lives affected by the continued use of asbestos. Partial proceeds from the Vancouver screening, hosted by the Mullen family, were donated to AREA Fund.
