What Remains – film & workshop programme

The ‘What Remains’ film will be premiered as part of the Pushing Up Daisies Festival 2018 in Todmorden.

After the death of her husband by suicide, Gillian Brooks tried to make sense of the events and preserve memories for her children. So she wrote it down as a story. Now her words have inspired a film made by Gillian and her family with the help of award-winning filmmaker Geoff Brokate.

Screenings will be accompanied by time for reflection and discussion:

  • 16th May @ The Old Co-op, Todmorden 3-5pm
  • 1st June @ Northlight Studios, Hebden Bridge 2-4pm

Please email Gillian to reserve a place: gillybrooks@talktalk.net

The workshop – What Remains

A unique workshop package that will use a combination of film and creative activity to support people experiencing loss through suicide. Over the next 12 months award-winning arts company verd de gris will be reaching out to local families and support agencies providing a creative group workshop programme. Working with bereavement counsellor Gillian Brooks, they aim to provide family members with the time and space for quiet reflection and shared conversation in a bid to understand more about the emotional legacy of suicide bereavement and what can be done to break down the stigma families often live with as part of its legacy.

If you would like more information about these groups sessions or further information about the project in general please contact Sharon Marsden – email: sharon@verddegris.org or visit the website: www.verddegris.org
