Rosalind Uncut 18
From the archive
This film was last shown on 28 April 2018
Claire Blundell-Jones’ new film explores how a husband, a son and a daughter have coped with a violent death.
The video meanders between two audio accounts Claire conducted with her brother and father whilst the visuals portray their recent home lives. One house in Sheffield and the other in Grindleford provide the gentle domestic backdrop for the story of Claire’s mother, Rosalind, and her death over 25 years ago.
"Rosalind Uncut is an intensely personal and powerful exploration of grief. Both contemplative and inventive, the film is moving without resorting to sentimentality - a rarity for the important subject matter it addresses."
– Richard Warden - Film Curator / Producer
An informal conversation will take place with Brendan Stone - University of Sheffield Professor and Director of Sheffield Flourish - in the café after the screening.
