SHORT DOCUMENTARY | 12 minutes | World Premiere

Survivor, produced for The Distinguished Gentlemen's ride, is the story of Mark Atkinson and his family and how they were impacted and dealt with Mark's depression and panic attacks. In addition to that, he was also diagnosed with prostrate cancer.

Director's Statement

When Stephen from Gentleman's Ride got in touch with me to ask if I'd be interested in making a film for this year's DGR ride, I was both happy and anxious. Happy in that, from their wealth of rider stories, I was finally been given the chance to help tell one. Anxious, in that I knew that I couldn't misstep lest I betray viewers somehow, undermining their experiences with mental illness and depression.
