Film - Death By Joy: An Escorted Journey - Sat Sep 22

Screening - Saturday, September 22, 7:30pm at the Mayne Island Community Centre.

"Death By Joy: An Escorted Journey" is a candid story of one woman's choice to find joy in dying. Saying no to aggressive medical intervention, Mary embarks on a clear-headed quest for the true meaning of healing. Her unforgettable discoveries along the way can change profoundly your understanding of life, healing, and death.

This documentary film is produced by Pender Islanders Andrea and Jim Cribb. Jim will be on hand the night of the screening to answer questions and to share the experience of bringing Mary's remarkable journey to light.

It is, Jim states, "a film with no fluff; a documentary in the true sense of presenting a subject (in this case a difficult subject, for some even a taboo subject) as it unfolds, immersing you in the daily life of a woman, her family, and a community."

The film is touring the Southern Gulf Islands and Vancouver Island this fall; first stop is Mayne Island! By way of invitation to attend the screening, Jim says,"If you wish to engross yourself in a journey of discoveries, if you wish to break through the gauze of gloom and darkness that many cultures have wrapped around the most natural of human experiences, then do take in "Death By Joy". Rest assured you will come away from this film ultimately richer with a new outlook on dying. And living."

Admission is $10 at the door.
