IMG_0413STROUD NEWS & JOURNAL: kindly printed our AGM report in their community pages. It included a recent comment from a viewer who gets this newsletter: “I just want to say what a brilliant initiative this is. I have subscribed to your news for a few years now and always appreciate the content. I can see what’s going on in the area without having to go to everything!”
THE GOOD GRIEF PROJECT: Beyond Goodbye Media are proud and very excited to announce that Stroud based filmmaker Jimmy Edmonds has received a travel fellowship from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust for THE GOOD GRIEF PROJECT. In August this year he and his partner Jane Harris will embark on a road trip across the USA and Mexico, producing a documentary film along the way.   Good Grief is about how bereaved parents are finding new, creative and (some may say) healthier ways of grieving for a son or daughter who has died: ‘We live in a culture where grief dare not speak it’s name,’ says Jane,  ‘it often feels uncomfortable and quite disturbing if we bring Josh into the conversation. People are afraid to mention him in case it brings back unpleasant memories.   But actually the opposite is true – the more we talk about Josh, the easier it is for us to acknowledge our grief and to see it as an opportunity for growth and a better understanding of the world.’ See more at: http://beyondgoodbye.co.uk/?page_id=6126

‘UNLAWFUL KILLING’: Princess Diana Banned Documentary 2011 by Stroud’s Keith Allen. This was apparently the film that the royal family  blocked from release and was uploaded to YouTube earlier this year. It is about the deaths of Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Fayed on 31 August 1997. It was financed by Mohamed Al-Fayed and Associated-Rediffusion and shown in Cannes while the 2011 Cannes Film Festival was in progress. As a film made by a prominent local we’ve added the link here for folks to visit: https://youtu.be/T-c1ouaehwg
