A LOVE THAT NEVER DIES (12a) is a personal journey by two bereaved parents Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds and a love letter to their son Josh who died in a road accident in South East Asia seven years ago. They now honour him with their own journeys: to Vietnam the place where he died, to Varanasi, India and a road trip across the USA, where they meet with other families who have also lost a child, all of whom have found grief variously isolating, transformative yet ultimately life enhancing.
There will be a Q&A session after the film with Jane and Jimmy.

Co-Director and Producer, Jane Harris said: “We wanted to give a voice to grief that is not maudlin or morbid but full of hope and resilience”
