Dying Matters Awareness Week

Since its release last October, Seven Songs for a Long Life has been used as part of a UK-wide campaign to deepen the discussion around End of Life care. It screened in hospices, cinemas, and local community venues up and down the country during Hospice UK Week, and has gone on to screen many more times since.

We’re delighted that Seven Songs will be part of this discussion once again, this time for Dying Matters Awareness Week (May 9th to 15th), contributing to their central theme - THE BIG CONVERSATION!

"Dying is as individual as living. Who you are shapes your life right up to, and including, death. That means you can choose the way you want to die, and how you live your final years. 80% of us say we want to die at home, but almost none of us do. Research has shown that if we or our loved ones die alone or during invasive surgery, it is usually because we have been too afraid to have the conversations about the end of our lives. These are not easy conversations, but this film is probably the gentlest and most pleasurable way to introduce the subject, whether it is for yourself or someone you care about." Director Amy Hardie

Workshops and hosted screenings can take the conversation further. They can provide patients and their families, the general public, and health-care professionals with a safe space to think about and plan for the best final months and years of their lives.

If you are interested in becoming part of this conversation then please register your interest here and we will be able to talk you through all the different options.

Seven Songs can be booked for FREE community screenings throughout all of Dying Matters Awareness Week.
