An Inquiry into End-of-Life Experiences: Film Screening and Q&A

November 1, 2018, 7:00pm9:00pm

This film illuminates occurrences that are rarely shared publicly but remain deeply meaningful to those who experience them. After the screening, Harry Weil, Green-Wood’s Manager of Programs, will join Davis in a discussion about her research and work.

Five years ago, artist Leigh Davis had a strange and profound experience at the deathbed of a family member. Since then, she has worked to create a body of work examining unusual phenomena reported to happen around the time of a death. They include premonitions, seeing a golden light, chills or an unexplained warmth, and sudden lucidity. Davis has recorded over 20 end-of-life experiences through interviews with hospice nurses, chaplains, social scientists, therapists and family members.

Presented as part of Reimagine End of Life, a community-wide exploration of death and celebration of life through creativity and conversation.
