This fascinating documentary profiles several terminally ill Oregonians who take advantage of that state’s pioneering law allowing medical aid in dying. Focusing on the stories of Cody Curtis, suffering with liver cancer, and Nancy Niedzelski, campaigning for the passage of a similar law in Washington state, it makes clear exactly what aid in dying is, and why it is so important. A winner of many awards including the grand jury prize for best documentary at the 2011 Sundance festival, it’s profound, beautiful, and moving.
Sponsored together with Final Options Illinois (FOI), working for the passage of aid-in-dying legislation for Illinois. A discussion led by FOI president Ed Gogol will follow the film.
