Mortal LessonsDVD - 2008
This film follows two women dealing with terminal cancer. Threaded through the two women's narratives are the perspectives of hospice workers, funeral directors, bereavement counselors and others who deal with death and with dying people on a daily basis. Palliative and hospice care are examined, as well as advance directives and how to include loved ones in end-of-life decisions. The last few chapters discuss the cycle of life and explore both religious and non-religious perspectives on the possibility of an afterlife. Two bonus tracks offer a brief look at the modern funeral industry, and at how death is portrayed in the media.
