Screening of: In the Parlor: The Final Goodbye, a documentary
We are happy to be hosting this screening at our office on Friday May 27. We will begin with an introduction of the film at 6:00pm by director Heidi Boucher with the film to follow and a question and answer directly following the film. The screening will be free and open to the public and any donations received will go directly to the film makers. I hope you will join us.
“Rejecting the mainstream tradition of hiring funeral professionals to care for the deceased, families in search of a more personal and fulfilling way to say goodbye are taking an active role in caring for relatives who have died.
Both a critical look at the American relationship with death and an inquiry into the home death care movement, In The Parlor: The Final Goodbye takes viewers on a journey where very few have gone, and challenges us to reflect on this uncomfortable subject, which so often is hidden away and ignored.”
