Alternate Endings: HBO Documentary

I worked with broadcast journalist, Perri Peltz, on the HBO documentary, Alternate Endings: Six New Ways to Die in America, premiering on Wednesday, August 14 at 8 p.m. EDT/PDT. The film brings to life similar stories that I report on in my book, Parting Ways. “Alternate Endings tells six stories of people nearing death and of family members of the recently deceased, who have chosen non-traditional end-of-life options and remembrances, from celebrations of life and living wakes, to green burials, extraterrestrial burials and more. Profoundly intimate and illuminating, the film explores what it means to be near death, either from age or terminal illness, and captures the healing power of honoring, giving thanks, and staying true to loved ones who have passed away.” I urge you to watch the documentary with your families. I hope that it will inspire conversations about the choices we make when time is limited and how we live a life that will be remembered!
