    Dying for Beginners Short Film

    “We need to talk about it. Because talking about death will help us to live together better.” A fascinating, must watch animated short film made in London called Dying for Beginners, created by the filmmaker / illustrator Emily Downe. It’s just over 4 minutes and it’s a remarkably soothing watch despite the topic at hand. The intro: “Talking about death has become a bit of a taboo, but in this film, palatine care physician Dr Kathryn Mannix gently de-mystifies the process of dying. I hope it’s helpful.” The acclaimed author, speaker and former palliative care physician Dr Kathryn Mannix has spent her medical career working with people who have incurable, advanced illnesses. She is on a mission to reclaim the public’s understanding of dying. This film hopes to really begin the conversation and keep it going – you can find out more about her research & writings on her official site. The animation is so simple and comforting, and works well with this.
