SCREENINGS

How To Die In Oregon, 107 min, 2011

In 1994, Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. As a result, any individual whom two physicians diagnose as having less than six months to live can lawfully request a fatal dose of barbiturate to end his or her life. Since 1994, more than 500 Oregonians have taken their mortality into their own hands. In How to Die in Oregon, filmmaker Peter Richardson gently enters the lives of the terminally ill as they consider whether – and when – to end their lives by lethal overdose. Richardson examines both sides of this complex, emotionally charged issue. What emerges is a life-affirming, staggeringly powerful portrait of what it means to die with dignity. Pg13 more ~ director statement ~ Interview on CBC’s Q with Jian Ghomeshi.

Galina Coffey-Lewis will be joining us for the post-film discussion. She is a retired health professional, a volunteer with Dying With Dignity, and very well informed about recent developments and legislation in various jurisdictions world wide.

We Were Here, 90 min, 2011

A deep and reflective look at the arrival and impact of AIDS in San Francisco and how individuals rose to the occasion during the first years of this unimaginable crisis. “Absolutely electrifying. I wept, sure, but mostly from relief that this story has finally been told with all its dimensions intact: the panic, the betrayals, the brave humor, the enormity of what we lost – yet, ultimately, affirmed for the ages. It’s a love story about the resilience of our tribe.” Armistead Maupin Pg13 trailer.

As part of this year’s AIDS Awareness Week which begins on Monday November 26th – a panel of speakers for Q&A after the screening. – collaborating with AIDS Vancouver Island.

Movies are shown on a 12′ screen in the Eric Martin Pavilion in the 1900 block of Fort St. Admission by donation! Pop & popcorn at ridiculously low prices. See: http://islandnet.com/mm/
