Consider the Conversation: Unplugged
Rare is the documentary filmmaker who has both personal and professional experience with end-of-life issues, let alone the privilege of being granted perspective by patients, family members, doctors, nurses, social workers, clergy and national experts. In this program, co-producers Michael Bernhagen and Terry Kaldhusdal provide "behind the scenes" perspective into the making of Consider the Conversation: A Documentary on a Taboo Subject. In particular, they screen and analyze several clips from the film; share their incredibly moving personal stories of loss; and relate a Frank Capra-like story about overcoming long odds to produce a film that is not only considered the long-awaited answer to the political rhetoric in Washington, but is also changing the culture of medicine.
The length of this presentation = 90 minutes. Optional audience Q&A session = 30 minutes.
