A Love That Never Dies is a documentary about bereaved parents who go on a journey following the one taken by their son who died in a motorcycle accident.

The film follows Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds on a trip to Vietnam, where their son Josh died seven years ago, before they visit the holy city of Varanasi in India, and ultimately travel across the USA on a road trip to meet other parents who have lost a child.

Produced and directed by the couple, the film is a poetic exploration of grief and loss, giving a hopeful voice to those who have lost a loved one.

They hope to break down cultural barriers that still make discussions about death and loss somewhat taboo, despite the fact that death makes headline news time and time again.

Director, Cinematographer & Editor, Jimmy Edmonds said: “As a filmmaker, A Love That Never Dies has been the hardest project I’ve ever worked on. As a bereaved dad, it has probably saved my life”.

Co-Director and Producer, Jane Harris said: “It’s 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”.

Dr Katherine Shear, from Columbia University's Centre for Complicated Grief, said: “Powerful and important stories. Grief can bring us together and teach us how to live. Few people have embraced their grief stories with as much love and energy and courage as Jimmy and Jane.”

Jimmy Edmonds is a BAFTA winning filmmaker and the couple started their own charity The Good Grief Project to help people who have suffered the loss of a child.

The film will be shown at The Plaza cinema in Truro on Tuesday July 17.
