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

Hosted by

Leigh Davis & Harry Weil

Thursday, November 01


This event has ended.

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.
