The inspirational story of Joey+Rory’s Joey Feek will come to the big screen for one night only on Sept. 20, via the documentary To Joey, With Love. Joey died in March at age 40 after battling stage IV cervical cancer.
The project was written, filmed and directed by Rory Lee Feek and produced by Aaron Carnahan. Ben Howard of Provident Films served as executive director. The documentary being is distributed by Provident Films.
The documentary will chronicle 2 1/2 years of their lives together, from the birth of Joey+Rory’s daughter Indiana, who was born with Down Syndrome, through Joey’s struggle with and ultimate surrender to cancer at age 40.
“Joey didn’t live to see her 41st birthday, but this September, just a week or so after her birthday on the 9th… my wife will get the chance to live again,” said Rory Feek. “On a movie screen, her heart will start beating and her story will come to life once more and it will be my gift to her. And to our girls. And to our friends and family and all who loved her.
“I have had lots of time these last few months to think about what anniversary gift I wanted to give to my wife this year — what act of service I could do, that would matter to her — if she were here. So with the help of some friends, I am going to try to give her a gift that is pretty much impossible … To live on, even after she’s gone.”
