'My Bag and I' is documentary short aiming to spread awareness about social osto-mates (colostomy's/ileostomy's) in the 21st century.

by Michael Durban in Mawnan Smith, Cornwall, England

My Bag and I is a documentary which aims to raise awareness about social individuals who have a colostomy or ileostomy, also known as a stoma. The documentary will follow testimonials from people who live young and active lifestyles who will touch on topics such as the procedure itself, work, sports, dating, sex and mental health.

Aim's: To explore what stigmas and social challenges young people face after having a surgical process which leaves them with a colostomy/ileostomy bag. To speak to social ‘osto-mates’ who will give their personal stories and struggles through their journeys, with the intention to inspire those who are going through this process that they are not alone in their personal struggles. Why now? Having spoken to many people who have stomas, I have noticed an ongoing trend of young people not getting the advice they need when it comes to socialising in the 21st century. The aim of this documentary is to offer an honest approach from young people who are living this journey who have practical first-hand advice. 

We really believe that this film needs to be made to bring about change and hopefully show teenagers and many other social groups that stomas are not an end to socialising, but a vessel to a better quality of life for the hundreds and thousands of people all over the world who have a stoma.

What do we need?

In order to tell this story, we have secured fantastic contributors that are situated all across the UK. We are asking for funds to help us cover the cost of travel, equipment, accommodation and the other costs that we shall encounter along the way as film makers. 

To make this film we require a minimum of £1200 and we need your help to make this a reality. We are grateful for every contribution and as a thank you we have a number of fantastic perks including hand made prints and postcards showing the themes and messages of the film created by us, for you.

Please watch our video explaining the project itself and if you want to know any more please feel free to contact us.
