About Griefwalker

Dying: the great blindspot in a culture awash in information, the great arbiter in a culture adamant about extending the power of choice across all of our endeavours. Griefwalker is a feature length National Film Board of Canada documentary of stephen Jenkinson’s work with and on behalf of dying people, directed by Tim Wilson. It is also a profound mandate for creating sanity around the heart breaking and often toxic death fears and practices that gather at our dying time now. Jenkinson asks,”What does it take to fall in love with being alive?”, and the answer that he offers, both unwelcome and vitally necessary, is, “Being willing to see the end of what you love.”

Su Griefwalker (“L’uomo che cammina col dolore”):

Morire: il grande punto cieco in una cultura inondata dall’informazione, il grande arbitro in una cultura ostinata ad estendere il potere della scelta a qualsiasi campo. Griefwalker e’ un documentario di lungometraggio dell’Ente statale Cinematografico Canadese che riguarda il lavoro di Stephen Jenkinson con e per le persone in fin di vita. Il film e’ diretto da Tim Wilson.

E’ un mandato profondo per creare sanità attorno alle paure e le pratiche tossiche e dolorose che riguardano la morte che ci visitano al capezzale.

Jenkinson ci chiede: “ Che cosa ci vuole per innamorarsi della vita?”, la riposta che ci offre, sia indesiderata che assolutamente necessaria, e’: “ Avere la volontà di vedere la fine di ciò che ami”.

Questa traduzione e’ il risultato dello sforzo e della dedica di Giulia Sbernini.

Senza di lei, questo documentario non sarebbe stato disponibile al pubblico italiano. Grazie!
