In 2010, during my masters in Material and Visual Culture at UCL I completed a documentary filmmaking course. The resulting film was one of 5 selected from a class of 18 to be shown at the annual UCL film premiere screening.
An inspiring love story that focuses on Joan Cattanach’s memories of her 59 year marriage to her husband Sandy. The film documents the importance of objects and possessions in the development of life-long relationships and shows that while objects are essential in order to bond with others in life, their significance, rather than die with the physical body, continues as an important tangible way of connecting with loved ones after death.
