He is an award winning director and cinematographer whose short films have screened in numerous international festivals. Tiny Dancer (writer/director) was one of twelve films selected across Canada to screen at the Toronto Student Show Case. The following year his graduating film Scattering Eden (cinematographer) won best cinematography at the Toronto Student Showcase and the 2007 Leo Award for best Student Production.
Philip co-founded Dualogue Productions Inc. 65_RedRoses is Philip's first documentary film, which he co-directed, produced and edited.

Nimisha Mukerji is an award-winning producer/director from Vancouver, British Columbia whose passion is documentary film.

Product Description

Redefining the traditional scope of documentary film in an electronic age, 65_RedRoses leaves viewers with a new appreciation of life and the digital world. This personal and touching journey takes an unflinching look into the lives of Eva Markvoort and her two online friends who are all battling cystic fibrosis (CF) - a fatal genetic disease affecting the lungs and digestive system.

Unable to meet in person because of the spread of infections and super bugs, the girls have become each other's lifelines through the Internet, providing unconditional love, support and understanding long after visiting hours are over. Now at a critical turning point in their lives, the film travels the distance the friends cannot go themselves, capturing the compelling and often heartbreaking realities they face, just trying to take each breath.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Documentary on CF May 11, 2012
Format:DVD
65 Redroses is a must see! It follows the life of a young woman, Eva, in her 20's, living with Cystic Fibrosis. Faced with the challenges of this complex incurable disease, Eva lives life to the fullest. Her mantra: "Love, love, love." Never have a seen such a honest, and touching film. This film touched so many people's lives, giving them hope. Eva's website, 65redroses.com, has a huge following. Her supporters encouraged her, and her cause; organ donation. A film you'll soon not forget. Definately worth checking out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and empowering! November 11, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If I could put 20 stars, I would. I am a Pediatric Nurse and I have been working with a lot of Cystic Fibrosis patients. I had heard about this documentary for a while and was unable to get it until today... Let me assure you that I was not disappointed. It gave me another point of view of this horrible disease and I believe made me stronger as a nurse. Eva's story is incredibly inspiring and empowering. If you ever feel down on yourself, watch it because you will never complain again! This documentary is very well executed and shows us how courageous you have to be to battle such a condition. Thank you Eva!

5.0 out of 5 stars See this movie... June 15, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
65_RedRoses is a true story of a brave, spirited, and compassionate young woman who wanted what most of us take for granted – good health in order to be able to pursue her dreams. Eva Markvoort was such an inspiring young woman. Eva’s life story and message about perseverance and the power of love will continue on to viewers of this film. You can't help but be moved by Eva’s parents, sister, brother, and friends. They went through so much, yet, demonstrated such positive resilience amidst heartbreaking setbacks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Change of (Your) Heart May 22, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Eva's story is one of struggle, strength, courage, bravery and love.The emotional connection you feel between you and her during the film is unlike anything I've ever experienced watching the many documentaries I have on Netflix, which is why i had to have it. While at its core is about revealing and raising awareness of the horrible genetic disease known as Cystic Fibrosis you'll find on the way there, there is so much to life that you take for granted. This film reminds you what it is to love, to live, to breath, to be, to smile, to enjoy, to pursue your dreams and honestly changed the way i perceived life and treat others around me.The empowering woman known as Eva gives life back to yours in this documentary and may i just say it is a must watch and well worth a buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars MOVING, HEARTBREAKING, INSPIRATIONAL May 16, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is a very well-done documentary which took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions. Honestly, I am amazed and inspired by Eva's love of life and determination to live it to the fullest with love and appreciation. Puts my own problems into realistic perspective. My heart also broke for her parents and siblings. Honestly, I can't imagine living through an entire lifetime of this type of physical and emotional pain. The doctor was simply amazing and it was powerful to see him down on his knees in prayer before the operation.

I'm writing this blog right after seeing the film and I'm at a loss for words. Overwhelmed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good story isn't always a happy story February 2, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This is certainly sad on the surface. People with CF pretty much live with the knowledge that they will die before middle age. This film is about one woman with CF who is in her early 20s.. and what her life is like for a couple years. Watching this definitely makes organ donation seem less abstract than just a check box on your driver's license. I'd say this is probably good for teenagers to watch, because I bet they will be able to relate to the young women in the film.... and think a little bit about how lucky some people are... and how unlucky others are.
