Discussions about that taboo subject – death – will open up when a new film, Live the Life You Please, plays at the Event Cinema Bondi Junction at 6pm, on May 24.
The film introduces Australians of all ages, and from all over Australia, who are “experiencing their last chapter” – that is dying.
It’s an intimate portrait of people’s end-of-life and one which will change the way audiences think, says Director Mike Hill.
“Live the life you please is designed both to be a film that makes a lasting impression on its audience but also one that starts important conversations,” he told Good Grief!
‘And the Q&A sessions are such a valuable tool. They will enable audience members to better understand what they’ve discovered and apply those learnings to their own lives. In this way, the film can act as a conduit to profound and lasting personal growth.”
After the film, the audience will be invited to ask questions at a Q&A session hosted by Dr Davinia Seah, Palliative care physician, St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney. The panel will consist of:
- Associate Professor Richard Chye, Director of Palliative Care at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney
- Dr Susan Trethewie, Paediatric Palliative Care Specialist, Sydney Children’s Hospital
- Mr Graeme Brown, Facility Manager at St Vincent’s Aged care Services Bronte
- Margaret Rice, creator of good-grief.com.au.
