Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death
Presented by The Sheen Center
Wednesday, October 17, 2018 @ 7PM
We don’t know how. We don’t know when. But death comes to us all. To be human is to grapple with this truth and with the great unanswered question: How do we live with death in our eye? Into the Night features men and women of uncommon eloquence and intelligence who are grappling with this question. They come from all walks of life, dying and healthy, old and young, well known and obscure. For them death is no longer an abstraction. Whether through a dire prognosis, the loss of a loved one, or a temperament born to question, they have been shocked into mortality.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with Emmy Award-Winning filmmaker and producer, Helen Whitney.
