The redemptive power of a deep love for life
Welcome to the Tricycle Film Club!
Each month, Tricycle Supporting and Sustaining Members will be treated to a select feature-length film, presented in partnership with Alive Mind Cinema and BuddhaFest Film Festival, June 14-17 in Washington, DC. The benefits of membership continue to grow, so if you're not already a Supporting or Sustaining Member, upgrade now and watch our March selection, Griefwalker, written and directed by Tim Wilson. The discussion is led by the film's subject, Stephen Jenkinson.
Griefwalker (March 2012)
A universal experience whether or not we can admit it, death is the sole counterpart to life. From the moment we take our first breath, death is our only guaranteed experience. This is something Stephen Jenkinson not only understands but something he loves. And he wants you to feel the same way. Griefwalker, a feature length documentary by Tim Wilson, sets its lens on Jenkinson in an unforgettable exploration of death phobia as a culture.
Discussion leader Stephen Jenkinson, a Harvard educated theologian, is one of Canada’s leading palliative care educators. Listen to a Tricycle Talk with Jenkinson here.
