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

Tuesday August 29th, 2023 7 PM  UNC-Asheville Reuter Center 300 Campus View Rd Asheville, NC 28804
