I wanted to share with you all an exciting update about the documentary film “Palliative” that I have been involved in for the last several years and features multiple patients cared for at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, Hutzel Women’s Hospital, and Angela Hospice.
Our film had been selected for the annual Detroit Free Press Film Festival, which was planned for April 22-26. Regrettably, just prior to announcing the line up, the current pandemic hit and all things were put on hold.
At this time, the Freep festival has rescheduled all of its in-person events to December 2020. However, they decided to move forward with a small selection of films for a virtual festival this week, and our film is being featured.
It will be airing virtually, along with another short documentary, at 1 p.m. EST from their website this Wednesday, April 22, 2020. There will be a Q&A shown after the films that will feature myself, one of the parents from the film, the director of the film, and will be moderated by my colleague and mentor, Dr. Mike Stellini.
Please share with staff and whoever else you wish. This is a PUBLIC screening. We are looking forward to a big group of participants!
