Beginning with the End

“Beginning With the End” is a feature length documentary film that follows the experiences of a culturally diverse group of 16 to 18 year-olds who are given the unusual and extraordinary opportunity to work as trained hospice volunteers. Through their eyes and voices, viewers will witness the life-altering experiences of these young people who are themselves in the throes of many changes and transitions. Through them, we discover the seeds of a compassionate society, and come to appreciate the power of empathic teens. [Synopsis courtesy of SXSW]
