Living While Dying – Q&A discussion with Cathy Zheutlin (part of EOLCNY’s Book & Film Series)

July 27, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Join us for a Q&A webinar discussion with the filmmaker Cathy Zheutlin about her film “Living While Dying” on July 27th at 3pm. In this documentary, filmmaker Cathy Zheutlin chronicles the experiences of several people living with terminal illness who greet the inevitable with courage, humor, creativity and acceptance. Her curiosity about death leads her to seek the advice of an aboriginal elder and a deathwalker in Australia, witness a mass cremation in Bali, and ask her 90-year old mother to sit in a coffin while discussing end-of-life wishes. “Living While Dying” invites us to re-imagine our own inevitable ending in new ways. This film sheds light on supportive practices, beliefs, hopes and environments that can help foster a sense of peace and fulfillment, and offers many opportunities for robust discussion about navigating the end of one’s life.
