Event description
Two films focusing on living, dying and the rituals of saying goodbye to the people we love. DEAD GOOD and HOLDING SPACE

About this Event

Women Over 50 Film Festival and St Mary's Church, Walthamstow, present an evening of film and discussion on a topic many find difficult to talk about - death.

HOLDING SPACE by Rebecca Kenyon is an observational short documentary about the connection between a dying person and their end of life doula. Finding both poetry and humour, we witness three people on the threshold between life and death as they prepare to let go.

DEAD GOOD by Rehana Rose is an intimate portrait of those dealing with their dead, supported during the ritual of care after death by a team of women who are ‘giving death back to the people’.

“Beautifully crafted, so comforting as well as moving and gives the wisdom forth so simply and compellingly. Everyone should see this.” Dame Emma Thompson

Discussion/Q&A chaired by Revd Vanessa Conant, Team Rector of St Mary's Walthamstow, with filmmakers Rehana Rose (DEAD GOOD), Rebecca Kenyon (HOLDING SPACE), and the Revd Dr Jeremy Brooks, an Anglican expert on funerals.
