FILM SCREENING: Death is But a Dream (In Person and Virtual)
FILM SCREENING: Death is But a Dream (In Person and Virtual)

Christopher Kerr is a hospice doctor. All of his patients die. Yet he has cared for thousands of patients who, in the face of death, speak of love and grace.

Join World Community and the Comox Valley Hospice Society for a screening of the uplifting film Death is But a Dream on Thursday, January 12th, at 7 pm at the Stan Hagen Theatre, North Island College. 

Everyone is welcome. Admission is by donation.

The film will also be available virtually from January 13 – 15.  For links to the film trailer and to pre-order tickets, CLICK HERE.

This documentary explores the remarkably life-affirming processes that are happening beyond the physical realities of dying. These include dreams that are unlike any regular dream. Described as “more real than real,” these end-of-life experiences resurrect past relationships, meaningful events and themes of love and forgiveness; they restore life’s meaning and mark the transition from distress to comfort and acceptance. 

Dr. Kerr leads the audience through intimate interviews with the dying where the viewer can experience the immense power of the dreams and visions first hand. The film paints a compelling and deeply moving portrait of the profoundly healing nature of the dying process and shows the great comfort these experiences can provide to the families they leave behind. A film of comfort, hope, and a genuinely uplifting look at death.
