Shot on the run in 1998, My Name is Jane is built around the biggest deadline a filmmaker could face: the death of its subject. With a history of cancer in her family, terminally-ill cancer sufferer (and then-partner of poet and broadcaster Gary McCormick) Jane Devine takes us through the process of making peace with her own passing — and the impossible task of preparing her young son for life without her. Possibly the most affecting hour of television ever screened in NZ, this doco won international acclaim.
