LESSONS FOR THE LIVING, Documentry
Directed by Lily Henderson
Co-Produced by Leslie Koren and Shani Hashaviah
This poignant and lyrical documentary captures a diverse collection of Hospice volunteers reflecting on the meaning of their experiences with dying people. Featuring introspective and evocative portraits, LESSONS FOR THE LIVING doesn’t hand us a step-by-step guide, nor does it cradle us in a heavenly cloud of promise. It gives us more than that. It humbles us. We just have to sit and listen.
Directed by Robert M. young
Produced by Joel Ehrlich and Tom Bower
Dobbitt is called away from his loving wife for duty at “the Corporation,” a toxic factory that operates around the clock producing its mysterious units. Always willing to please, he arrives at his new quarters and meets his bunkmate, Hanrahan, a sharp and bitter man who incisively questions Dobbitt’s motives. The two report to Merkin, the petty and paranoid, back-stabbing plant manager, who ruthlessly pits his employees against one other. These type-B males swim in a comical stew of their own toxic juices as they jockey for power within the company.
