The Embrace of Dying; how we deal with the end of life
The end of life has been a subject of fascination for philosophers, religious leaders, scientists and theologians for thousands of years. Every one of us will be faced with death at some point. We learn about this process through our loved ones, but how do we best go from merely observing to actually embracing the dying process? Can we truly embrace it? Where do we go? Do we go anywhere? From Hollywood's fascination with all things macabre to the family affair of running a funeral home, from celebrations of life around the world to the history of hospice, Emmy Award-winning producer/director Keith Famie takes a look at life's greatest journey - its end.
