Pas de résumé français disponible

Born with cystic fibrosis, Ethan Rice has been preparing to die his entire life. At 28, Ethan faces his demise with a dark sense of humour and more concern about what his passing will mean to those he leaves behind than for himself. He allows cameras to follow his final months, weeks, days and hours—not as a lament, but as a tool to preserve his final thoughts and feelings and to help his loved ones grieve, especially his father, a Vietnam vet with PTSD and stay-at-home dad who refuses to leave his son's side. Interweaving two decades of his father's home movies and Ethan's original music and stop-motion animation, this unflinching record of death's transformative influence on a family is essential viewing. How Do You Feel About Dying taps into a fear perhaps greater than death itself: that of a parent who chooses to no longer resuscitate their child after a lifetime of doing the opposite.
(Angie Driscoll)
