On Richard's Side
A new feature documentary from Pericles Films, the third in a trilogy of films spanning three decades.
Filmed over three decades, On Richard’s Side charts the life-story of Richard, a young man with a complex disability since birth. The film provides intimate and poignant insights into his parents’ determined quest to establish a quality life for their son and themselves.
This latest film is the third in a trilogy of documentaries about Richard and his family – Driving with Richard (1992) and Wonder Boy (2001).
“If we have a notion that there is something in humanity that is intrinsically worthwhile and valuable and that people who call forth our caring and our love and our compassion are doing a service to us because those are qualities that enrich our humanity…then without people who are vulnerable, without people who need us, how do we practise our caring and our compassion?”
