Holding Space

Holding Space is an intimate, observational documentary about preparing for death, told through the connection between a dying person and their end of life doula. Structured around a series of conversations, the film finds both poetry and unexpected humour in this most universal of experiences. By witnessing three people on the threshold between life and death, the film asks: if you knew you were dying, how would you prepare to let go?
