The End of the Reel | 7pm Wednesday
Salt Spring Public Library and Salt Spring Hospice invite you to The End of the Reel film series, Wednesday nights in May & June, for five thought-provoking films that delve into matters of consideration at End-Of-Life. Each film will be followed by discussion.
Wednesday June 1, 7PM, In the Parlor: The Final Goodbye
Heidi Boucher, the film’s producer will present this touching film looking at home deaths.
In the Parlor presents families in search of a more personal and fulfilling way to say goodbye by taking an active role in caring for relatives who have died.
Both a critical look at the relationship with death and an inquiry into the home death care movement, In The Parlor: The Final Goodbye takes viewers on a journey where very few have gone, and challenges us to reflect on this uncomfortable subject, which so often is hidden away and ignored. A film that will leave you thinking.
Memories & Connections: An intergenerational Art Project
Multi-media expressions of childhood memories by Salt Spring Elementary Grade 4/5s and residents of Greenwoods and Braehaven.
