Rare Frequencies is a film which draws upon conversations with people impacted by rare health conditions, recorded with members of the public, patients and practitioners involved in genomic medicine. Exploring the definition and frequency of rare conditions, the discussions are combined with footage filmed at a rewilded nature reserve in Manchester, UK, where native mossland plants have been reintroduced to restore and protect a rare peatbog habitat. With an original and evocative soundtrack score, the documentary connects together themes of environmental, social and personal healthcare, in the context of lived experience, shared similarities and natural ecologies.
