Balfour Mount: Reflections on Living and Dying


(2008) 26 minutes

A series of three videos that illuminate Canada’s father of palliative medicine, Dr. Balfour Mount, whose own brushes with death have shaped a career that has fundamentally changed the way we care for people at the end of life. Poignant and often humorous, these intimate portraits reveal his personal struggle with illness, his philosophy on healing, and his beliefs about caring for the dying.
