The family of one of London's victims of the 7/7 suicide bombings feature in a new documentary film executive produced by actor Sean Penn.
Miriam Hyman, a freelance picture editor who was 32 when she died in the bombings on July 7 2005, is one of three people featured in Love Hate Love, which will be screened at the New North London Synagogue on November 28 - which would have been two days before Miriam's 40th birthday.
The film also features the families of victims of 9/11 and the Bali bombings, discussing the impact that the unexpected and shocking events had on their lives.
Penn described the film - which features music from Radiohead and Bruce Springsteen - as a 'gift', adding, "It transcends the barrage of pessimism we can have."
Miriam's sister Esther will introduce the screening, which will be followed by a discussion with Rabbi Jonathan Wittenburg.
Since Miriam's death her family set up the Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust in her memory, raising money to help children with sight disorders, and have founded a children's eye care centre in her honour in Orissa, India.
