Prison Terminal is a moving documentary that breaks through the walls of one of Americas oldest maximum-security prisons to tell the story of the final months in the life of a terminally ill prisoner and the hospice volunteers, they themselves prisoners, who care for him. Prison Terminal draws from footage shot over a six-month period behind the walls of the Iowa State Penitentiary and provides a fascinating and often poignant account of how the hospice experience can profoundly touch even the forsaken lives of the incarcerated. (39 minutes) Open discussion to follow.
We will also wrap up the Die Well Death Education series – discussion, suggestions, questions, thoughts, etc.

*Individually wrapped, homemade skull cakelets will be provided.
