Brown Bag Lunch – Except for Six
Wed, Jan 16, 2013
11:30 AM – 1:30 PM
Part of the ‘Successful Aging’ video series presented by the GRCC Older Learner Center. This documentary is intended for the children and caregivers of aging parents and family members. The documentary was made in 2007 by dedicated hospice volunteers who wanted a better way to discuss end-of-life care. The film is an effort to change how we view the end-of-life. Michigan documentarian Matt Burnell directed the film which tells the stories of three individuals and their families facing challenges at the end of life. The film captures the poignancy of the end-of-life experience and dignity of these unique individuals. Award-winning documentary filmmaker Ken Burns has said of the film, “This is a heart-felt and important film that takes a subject that most of us would rather ignore and humanizes it. From the dedicated doctors and caregivers to the heroic patients, this is the story of what will happen to all of us.” Facilitated by Mike Faber.
