Rob Fraser always knew his life would be condensed. That's what comes with having cystic fibrosis. Rob calculates his age in dog years. He looks like a healthy bloke but now at 33, Rob's really an old man of 99. Rob can see the end of his life clearly and he's deciding to place himself on the waiting list for a lung transplant. He's had to come to grips with things most of us struggle with: body and soul, life and death. He's deciding what he's really prepared to risk. Rob has a huge capacity for life. Somehow for Rob the surf seems bigger and his guitar sounds sweeter. He's funny and down-to-earth and gets very tired of pills, hospitals and the medical system, at the same time he utterly depends on them. Still Breathing brings together startling, highly stylised images with a remarkably intimate voiceover by Rob. Leaving sentimentality behind, Still Breathing takes us on a lifetime's journey in less than half an hour. Produced and developed with the assistance of the Australian Film Commission, produced with the assistance of Film Victoria and produced in association with SBS Independent.
