About the event

We hope you'll join us for the opening of Closing Credits: An End-of-Life Film Series with a screening of End Game. Each film in the series offers a deep dive into different facets of the complex, beautiful, and humbling realm of death and dying.

In this film, terminally ill patients facing inevitable outcomes meet extraordinary medical practitioners seeking to shift our approach to both living and dying. This is a beautiful and touching film that opens hearts and minds to ancient and new ways of being, with sensitivity to our contemporary, technology-driven environment.

Join us in Central Library's Swanson Room for the screening, followed by an engaging discussion led  by experts from Hospice of the Piedmont, Panorama Natural Burial, and  Woven Roots Collective. This is an opportunity to share your thoughts  about the film, contemplate living and dying, discuss options for  end-of-life care, and better understand after-death practices, funerals,  and burials. This is a partner program with Central Library.

The film series will culminate in the second annual Death Fest: Gather, Grieve Grow, an  all-day community gathering to explore the natural cycles of life and  death on Sunday, Nov 3, at Montfair Resort Farm in White Hall, VA.

Closing Credits is a collaborative effort by Hospice of the PiedmontPanorama Natural Burial, and Woven Roots Collective to foster open conversations about life's final chapter. Other films in the series include:
