A film about the memory of a dead friend, Mark Greaves. Through the manipulation of archive films, photographs and recorded voice, juxtaposed with recollections from his family and his one time friend, the artist David Medalla, Greetings from the Living maps a story of friendship, sexuality, drugs, creativity, depression and death.

The film celebrates the strength and weakness of the bonds that bind us to one another and questions the remembrances of things past, its truths, fallacies and revelations. A vapour trail of memory.
