Documentary 57 minutes, 2007, Produced and directed by Camilla Rockwell

In a powerful yet tender treatment of life’s final passage, Holding Our Own challenges our cultural denial of aging and dying. The film features the work of Full Circle artist Deidre Scherer and Brattleboro’s Hallowell hospice chorus who share their creative gifts with those nearing the end of life. Ira Byock, M.D., author of Dying Well, speaks directly to issues we all will face. The film’s gentle and even celebratory approach can be shared with family and friends of all ages.

This screening will be followed by an introduction to the VNA’s hospice chorus, the Noyana Singers, who have been offering songs to the dying and their families throughout Chittenden & Grand Isle Counties since 2007.
