Movie Night: In the Parlor, The Final Goodbye
May 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for a free movie screening at the Del Mar Theatre. In the Parlor: The Final Goodbye is a thoughtful documentary about home death care and home funerals. This event is co-hosted by Hospice of Santa Cruz County and Natural Deathcare Initiative. The movie will be followed by a panel of local experts and the film’s director.
More about the film: Rejecting the mainstream tradition of hiring funeral professionals to care for the deceased, families in search of a more personal and fulfilling way to say goodbye are taking an active role in caring for relatives who have died. Both a critical look at the American relationship with death and an inquiry into the home death care movement, In The Parlor: The Final Goodbye takes viewers on a journey where very few have gone, and challenges us to reflect on this uncomfortable subject, which so often is hidden away and ignored.
