Seven Songs For A Long Life
How ca n a documentar y about terminally ill patients waiting out an uncertain timeframe for their impending demise ever be joyous and positive? In this case, director Amy Hardie emphasises the sense of community among six patients, a nurse and a fundraiser as they meet the prospect of death with good humour and a love of music. Filmed over three years at the Strathcarron Hospice, this presents everyday people made larger-than-life through quirky wit and strength of character, teaching us that facing mortality head-on can be the most life-affirming of decisions.
