About the Event
Ethan Sisser, a young man afflicted with brain cancer, sits alone in his hospital room. When he begins live-streaming his death journey on social media, thousands of people around the world join him and celebrate his courage. Still, Ethan envisions more – to teach the world how to die without fear. To honor his final wish of filming his death, his doctor, Aditi Sethi, transports him to a quiet house in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. What unfolds next is a story that's rarely glimpsed: how a community of strangers helps an unhoused man die on his own terms.
A sensory immersion into leaving the body “The Last Ecstatic Days”reveals a man who will not let us forget him – even after he’s taken his final breath.
"So moving and astonishing. I've never seen anything like it." - Michael Pollan, author of HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MIND
