Special Screening -Living While Dying
In a world that sees death as something to vanquish, the 45-minute documentary Living While Dying presents an alternative: people living with terminal illness who greet the inevitable with courage, humor, creativity and acceptance. Though the subject is difficult, the film is surprisingly uplifting.
Death is a big mystery, yet the outcome is 100% certain. Dispelling traditional fears and expectations about death, Living While Dying invites us to reimagine and set the stage for our own inevitable endings.
Zheutlin travels from Portland to Australia to Bali as she explores and unravels her own fears with an open, upbeat style. Along the way, she meets an Aboriginal elder and a death walker in Australia, and she witnesses a mass cremation in Bali. Because it's personal, she invites her 90-year old mom to an outside the box moment - sitting inside a box, a coffin, to talk with her about her end-of-life wishes.
The filmmaker will be in attendance. You are invited to stay for an open ended conversation after the film.
There is another screening on June 3rd, at the Jewish Community Center of Amherst at 3:30 PM 742 Main St
