Being and Becoming

Being and Becoming is a perennial theme of philosophical debate. Is existence best captured through an idea of what we are, or what we might be, or could have become. Is existence a movement towards the same, or towards being something different. By profiling very different people and situations these four short documentaries tackle the theme of being and becoming in different ways. 'Bec' gives us a glimpse of the very normal life of Rebecca Wong, a 20 year old law student at the University of Sydney, who is also blind. 'A Train of Reckless Thoughts' profiles Jonathan Beninca, whose life was changed forever after he was hit by a train. 'Just Cos' looks at the world of costume play, where everyday people dress up as their favourite anime or superhero characters. 'Kung Phil Fighting' introduces us to Phil Hilzinger, 67-year-old retiree, and a martial arts expert who puts the power of the mind at the heart of his philosophy of life.
