The ashes of film photographer Halyna Hutchins, who was killed last month in New Mexico while filming Rust, will be buried this weekend in an undisclosed location, according to Los Angeles Times and Deadline. And although there has been a very public outburst of support for her in the weeks following her death, the ceremony will be private, attended only by family and close friends.

Her husband, Matthew Hutchins, gave a heartbreaking statement to the publications:

“Halyna was the love of my life, and our loss of her has ruined our family’s dreams. We feel the silence that she is gone forever as a suffocating silence in our home. Our love and worship of her grows as we tell her “and we hope that her work can inspire filmmakers and storytellers around the world. We thank the many generous supporters who have been so thoughtful in our time of loss.”

He later referred to Hutchins’ 9-year-old son, Andros.

“We feel the silence that she is gone forever as a suffocating silence in our home. Our love and worship for her grows as we tell her story, and we hope her work can inspire filmmakers and storytellers around the world. ,” he said. “We thank the many generous supporters who have been so thoughtful in our time of loss.”

He included a photo of her tombstone, which contains a film camera, a film strip and two sentences, “Her light shapes our lives” and “Keep chasing your sight.”

Halyna Hutchins, 42, has been mourned by the public since her death on October 21. She died after a gun was used as a prop held by actor Alec Baldwin. According to court documents, Baldwin had been told that the weapon was “cold”, meaning it was not loaded with sharp ammunition. The film’s director, Joel Souza, was also injured during filming.

Lawyers for the armored man Hannah Gutierrez-Reed have in interviews suggested that “sabotage” played a role, pointing out that six members of the camera crew had just left the set that morning to protest the security conditions.

Several law enforcement agencies are investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, more than one former crew member has filed a lawsuit against those involved. Deadline reports that Hutchins, who is himself a lawyer, has hired the law firm Panish Shea Boyle Ravipudi, which specializes in personal injury and wrongful death cases, to represent him.

The death toll has already led to changes in the entertainment industry.
