“Damage From Within” – a 7 minute film by Sylvia Button

Damage From Within a 7 minute film by Sylvia Button by Sylvia Button

Sylvia Button’s 7 minute film, “The Damage From Within” is a sensitively and artistically crafted account of her voyage of self awareness and healing following experiences of sexual abuse in childhood. Her healing process involved building mutually-nurturing relationships with other people and the natural environment. Sylvia says, “I created it to illustrate how healing ourselves is a prerequisite for being better equipped to care for our planet and all that surrounds us.”

Created for the EcoDoc Program at MediaNet in Victoria, BC, Sylvia Button describes the development of her consumerism, personal responsibility and her relationship to the planet’s resources.
