Film Synopsis:

Advance care planning conversations are difficult for everyone, but especially for those who are marginalized. Please join us for an opportunity to unpack the perspectives of care providers and clients navigating the social determinants of health, particularly as they intersect with the delivery of palliative care. From the creators of Blue Roses (living and dying in Ottawa inner-city rooming houses, available now on CBC Gem) comes a 20-minute documentary featuring the voices of Diane Morrison Hospice clients. This screening will be followed by a diverse panel discussion that will include people with lived experience – to explore the tensions of survival, stigma, and ending life with dignity.


Join us for an insightful evening as we host a special screening of “The Challenge: Planning Without Tomorrow,” the latest documentary film from Kublacom Pictures. Produced in collaboration with Ottawa Inner City Health and Compassionate Ottawa, this 20-minute film takes a poignant dive into the complexities of advance care planning, with a focus on marginalized communities.
