Grieving the Loss of a Child: Finding a Language for Grief
time:16:00
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

This event is part of Good Grief Bristol, A Festival of Love and Loss. 11-17 May 2020 (https://goodgriefbristol.com/).

The UK is known for its ‘stiff upper lip’ and silence around death. Do other cultures manage this better? Do rituals help? Is there such a thing as closure? How can life carry on after the death of your child of any age?

The short film Lessons in Grief (18 mins) was made by Jane Harris and Jimmy Edmonds. It reveals what they learned about how others survive the death of a child from taking part in Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations and meeting with other bereaved parents following the death of their own son, Joshua. It turns out that it’s not as straightforward as they’d assumed.

This event includes a film screening followed by a Q&A with the film’s director Jane and fellow filmmaker, Lizzie Pickering.
