Movie-Making as Palliative Care

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

The last ten years have seen a significant change in pharmaceuticals and
disease management. A terminal diagnosis used to mean you would die within months. Now it can mean you have several years to live. Maybe. How do we negotiate this new uncertainty? Referring to three documentary films made
by Amy Hardie, this essay traces the development of an expanded cinema to
reach a complex engagement with our own mortality, illuminating the questions from Professor Howie: how do we live well right up to death?
