Flight from Death: The Quest for Immortality
Narrated by Gabriel Byrne, this seven-time Best Documentary award-winning film is the most comprehensive investigation of humankind’s relationship with death ever captured on film. Hailed by many viewers as a “life-transformational film,” the film uncovers death anxiety as a possible root cause of many of our behaviors on psychological, cultural and spiritual levels. With footage shot in eight countries, it features an all-star cast of authors, philosophers and researchers exploring what humans do to assuage fear of death. (2003)
