Hey, I'm Olivia!

Portsmouth, Rhode Island

My name is Olivia Hill Wiggins and I am a 23-year-old in search of reconnecting with my father. He died suddenly when I was 13-years-old. Ever since then I have continuously tried to understand how his passing impacts my life. In 2019, the tenth year without my dad, I hope to dig deeper into this life-long inquiry: 

 

How does death inform life, as well as our connection to others?

 

To dive into this question I am going to embark on a cross-country road trip, interviewing and collecting stories of my father from the people he knew and places he lived in his 48 years of life. Together, with my partners Mac and Mele (boyfriend and dog, respectively), I will chronicle this road trip and create DOCUMENT DAD, a documentary film about a daughter and her father, separated only by death, and brought back together through connection to those that knew and loved them both. 

 

I am incredibly excited to do this project and to share it with others. In addition to making this film, I am going to receive training to help suppor children and families who suffer the loss of a loved one. My hope with both of these endeavors is to not only gain insight into my own experiences, but to also to begin using my experience to heal and connect with others. 

 

Any support you have to offer would be greatly appreciated!

 

xoxo,

Olivia (a.k.a. Lulu Bell, what my dad always called me)
