Except for Six follows the stories of three families through their hospice experience. The film also seeks to educate viewers about hospice and palliative care, and death with dignity. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns called the film, “…a heart-felt and important film that takes a subject that most of us would rather ignore and humanizes it. From the dedicated doctors and caregivers to the heroic patients, this is the story of what will happen to all of us.”
I worked as the writer and researcher for this film. The project continues to shape the way I live today.
