"The Last Lullaby" Documentary Screening & Conversation
Could we all live a better life by squarely facing the inevitable fact of our own death?
“The Last Lullaby” focusses on a death midwife, who is an exquisite singer & proponent for conscious dying. Using a biographical lens, the film is an intensive account of her lived experience chaperoning a group of Californians grappling with their own hopes & fears. The songful incantations demarcate a calm oasis within our fears, a space within our imaginations to envision our ends, make plain our wishes with our loved ones, & converse more openly about death & dying.
In addition to sharing this inspiring & reflective documentary, a pre- introduction & post-conversation will be held with Sophie Dia Pegrum, filmmaker & Stefanie Elkins, Eldercare Manager/End-of-Life Doula with Be Present Care . We hope this film will inspire open dialogue & increase awareness on end of life support and we honor, Reimagine, as a very special and unique platform that does just this.
