Enduring Love: How parents survive the death of a child.

There shouldn’t be a time frame around healing. You don’t ‘get over it’. The more you love, the more you hurt. You can’t get around sadness – you have to go through it. We’re saying let’s be brave and strong and let’s allow people to be open. Let’s not apply rules.

The Wee Review

A Love That Never Dies a tender and moving pilgrimage of two grieving parents.

‘There is something shocking and yet therapeutic about this film: it is as straightforward and as honest as it could possibly be. In the realisation that tiptoeing around the truth and pain does not help, the directors make the decision of digging deep into their and other’s grief, with understanding, delicacy, and frankness.’

A LOVE THAT NEVER DIES – a review by Judith Gunn

The last time I saw Josh Edmonds, was outside Vue Cinema in Stroud, it was cold and we were going to different films so we chatted in the queue. On March 16th at 7.30pm, Josh will be back at Vue Cinema, only this time in spirit, because Josh died in a road accident in Vietnam six years ago. He was twenty two. He left behind his parents, a brother and sister and many, many friends. A Love That Never Dies is a film inspired by Josh’s life, his death and the trauma of the loss of a child.

RELEASED - a book by jimmy edmonds.

In early 2011, Jimmy Edmonds’ son was killed in a road accident while traveling in SE Asia. From personal tragedy he has created a moving and insightful book that reflects the way we use photographs in the process of mourning. It is also an exploration of the nature of photography itself. The “chaos of meaning” that Edmonds discovers lying at the heart of photography, mirrors almost exactly his own confusion surrounding the death of his son. Rarely have photography and poetry come together with such force.
