Mourir Pour Soi

73 minutes, 2000

Dying is something we normally avoid thinking about. But when living comes to mean wasting away, losing all autonomy, seeing one's very identity eroded, death may be a welcome deliverance. Living wills, heroic medical intervention, active euthanasia, passive euthanasia— which choices does our society allow? With courage and heart, critically ill people speak about quality of life and their wish to die with dignity. We also hear from doctors who advocate a more humane, less controlling approach to illness and death, which would allow us to die in a manner of our choosing.
