Revisiting Genesis follows two nurses, both named Jackie, who create biographical slideshows for people actively preparing for death. The slideshows are a tool for reflection on posthumous digital legacies, withdrawal, friendships, cultural and social loss, and memory as identity.
When a group of friends request this treatment for Genesis – an artist who is dying symbolically and otherwise – Nurse Jackie attempts to trigger Genesis’ memory and ‘bring her back through the slideshow.
Presented in parallel with Genesis’ story, the episodes are intercut with improvised interviews between Nurse Jackie, played here by a practising GP, and real people who have life-limiting conditions.
