HOLD, (Holding Ourselves and Each Other in Living and Dying), a Duke Divinity School student group and the Institute on Care at the End of Life will hold a screening of a newly released documentary, “Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject.”
The documentary examines multiple perspectives on end-of-life care and includes interviews with patients, family members, doctors, nurses, clergy, social workers and national experts from across the country. The film’s goal is to jump-start the conversation between husband and wife, doctor and patient, minister and parishioner, and parent and child. This is not a story about death – it’s a film about living life to its fullest up to the very end. A light dinner will be provided.
