I have been following Jess’s work ever since I heard Bats in the Attic on BBC Shortcuts. Jess so artfully integrates two weaving strands of a story together to create a 7-minute piece which is moving, poetic and challenging. The way Jess deals with grief - with curiosity and even humour - is so powerful. We spoke to Jess about Bats in the Attic and her programme Unchained which explores the impact of short term prison sentences on women's lives. You can listen to the episode here.
If you want to think more deeply about some of the ideas presented in this episode, Jess has offered these links as a place to start:
