Jimmy is a Bafta award-winning documentary film editor who has cut over 100 titles for the BBC, Channel Four and other broadcasters around the world, while Jane is a therapist and supervisor with The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Jimmy:

As a filmmaker, A Love That Never Dies have been the hardest project I have ever worked on. As a bereaved dad, it has probably saved my life.

Jane:

It is about not shying away from grief, of not letting go, but of continuing the bond with the deceased and finding rewards where we expected none.

The film has been produced for The Good Grief Project, a new UK based charity that hosts events and develops workshops, courses and retreats dedicated to helping the bereaved with grief and find creative ways to overcome it. It is planned for general release in the spring of 2018 with preview screenings scheduled in the run-up.
