Three emotional trailers have been released for a documentary about the late Jade McCann and her dad Anthony, who died just months apart.

Greystones woman Jade was 24 when she passed away in October from a rare form of cancer. Her dad Anthony died in January.

Cluster Fox Film had been working on a project with Jade and Anto for the previous two years, with actor John Connors spearheading the film.

The finished product, 'Endless Sunshine on a Cloudy Day' will be screened at the Dublin International Film Festival, on Thursday, March 5, at Cineworld. Tickets are €14 or €12 concession and available at dff.ie.

Mr Connors and Tiernan Williams spent 18 months documenting the story of the McCann family of Redford Park.

The first trailer shows Jade in bed, talking to the camera about coming into hospital.

'Every time I get brought in I'm like, "This is it now. I'm going to die in here". Sometimes that happens, cancer can be so fast and rapid and sneaky,' she says. 'I always get worried that if I get brought in and kept in that I won't be let back out and this is going to be it, I'll just die in here.'

The second trailer begins with Jade lost for words as she fights back tears.

Other clips show her walking in the sea while another shows her climbing a mountain.

'It's amazing to have somebody in your life that you don't have to explain yourself to,' Jade says in the beginning of the third trailer.

The final trailer shows conversations between Jade and her father Anthony, who passed away a few weeks after Jade following his own battle with cancer, with the crew.

'Born feet first, breached birth, hit the ground running 100 miles an hour,' the dad says as he speaks of his daughter.

Jade speaks again, saying: 'When I look back on my life I can't help but think how fast it's gone. I wish I could tell my younger self not to care what other people thought. I wish I had followed my instinct. I wish I had just followed my dream.

'The online world and the real world are very different; people are different. Online they put their best selves forward. Online they are your best friend. People can see everything you do and follow your whole life,' she says.
