Content descriptions

General Note:
Griefwalker is Tim Wilson's extraordinary portrait of palliative caregiver Stephen Jenkinson and his work. Whether sitting at the bedside of a dying woman, or speaking to clinicians whose job it is to delay death as long as possible, Jenkinson bears a message most people do not want to hear: that our deaths are not something to be denied or avoided, but "befriended." The film is framed by Wilson's wrestling with his denial of his own death as he nearly succumbs to a sudden illness, and his having to face the death of someone very close to him
