Griefwalker – directed by Tim Wilson 2008 70 mins 9 secs
and Q&A with Stephen Jenkinson

Cube Cinema, Bristol, Thursday 20th November 7-10 pm

This documentary introduces us to Stephen Jenkinson, the leader of a palliative care counselling team at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital. Through his daytime job, he has been at the deathbed of well over 1,000 people. What he sees over and over, he says, is “a wretched anxiety and an existential terror” even when there is no pain. Indicting the practice of palliative care itself, he has made it his life’s mission to change the way we die – to turn the act of dying from denial and resistance into an essential part of life. A stirring meditation on what it takes for us to fall in love with our lives.
