STOPPING FOR DEATH: THE NURSES OF WELLS HOUSE HOSPICE
Directed by WENDY RODERWEISS
ABOUT THE FILM
Most of us in North America hide from death. But the nurses at Wells House Hospice live with it daily. This is not a downer film. This is an inspiring (and even funny) look at the everyday gallantry of dying people and the nurses who make sure they live life right to the end. It is honest about the toll this takes on the nurses, and about the contributions some of these people have made to their own demise. It isn’t all flowers and serenity, but it is a true look at one of many days of love and caring. It will fill you with pride in human beings, and though you may cry a little, you will also smile.
