Love this!

Jimmy Edmonds’ film THIS IS PURGATORY was produced for Random Stroud, an arts project in which 24 artists were invited to respond to randomly selected map references in the Stroud Valleys area of Gloucestershire, England. Jimmy’s map reference was Purgatory Wood a small copse just to the south east of Swift’s Hill in the Slad Valley. But what starts out as an attempt to find out why Purgatory Wood is so called quickly becomes a fascinating series of character studies and a reflection on life now and the life hereafter.

“quirky, hilarious, thoughtful and moving… a lovely combination of humour and deep humanity” Pip Heywood in the Stroud News and Journal.
