Death-A Love Story screening this week, Casting, RIFC Documentary group meets this week, class running

 January 23, 2012
"Death- A Love Story" screening this week at Cable Car!

Death: A Love Story is a compelling, first person documentary that confronts our fears of the greatest unknown and reveals the moment-to-moment grace possible at the end of a life.

An Official Documentary Selection at the Sundance Film Festival, this film follows the journey of husband and wife filmmakers Mel Howard and Michelle Le Brun as they confront Mel's unexpected terminal illness and ultimate death.

Contrasted against Mel and Michelle's search for dignity...MORE and grace, is the world of medicine, both traditional and alternative, which they must first traverse. In the end, Mel shares his death and discoveries about life with extraordinary clarity and wisdom. Profoundly uplifting and thought-provoking, Death: A Love Story portrays the rite of passage we all must one day face. In all of its irony, power and poetry, it shows us that life's greatest gifts can sometimes be found in the seed of death.
