[dir: Briony Campbell and the participants from John Taylor Hospice, 2017]

Please be aware that these films are of a sensitive and sometimes explicit nature.

The six Life:Moving films were made in 2017 by participants from John Taylor Hospice (JTH), Erdington as part of a collaborative and interdisciplinary research project led by Michele Aaron, then at the University of Birmingham. The broad aim of the project is to challenge society’s misconceptions about terminal illness by giving those experiencing it the opportunity to tell their own stories, and by bringing these stories to a wider audience. The films will be introduced by two key members of the Life:Moving team, Michele Aaron (Associate Professor of Film Studies, Warwick) and Jed Jerwood, art psychotherapist at JTH and clinical academic researcher at Coventry University.
