Director Helen Whitney will host a special Reimagine conversation on October 28th at the "Into the Night" Facebook page.

INTO THE NIGHT: PORTRAITS OF LIFE AND DEATH, a documentary by Emmy Award-winning Director Helen Whitney, explores the various ways we think about death...not death in general, but our own in particular. INTO THE NIGHT features nine fascinating men and women from all walks of life, all ages: believers and nonbelievers, well-known and obscure. For them, death is no longer an abstraction. Whether through a dire prognosis, the imminence of their own death, loss of a loved one, a sudden epiphany, or a temperament born to question, these individuals have truly awakened to their mortality. Described by some critics as “a transformative film for the ages,” “essential viewing for all mortal beings,” and “a uniquely profound portrayal of our common human destiny,” previous screenings have inspired intense, searching conversations that continue in nearby restaurants and bars late into the night.
