Reimagining Death, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, is a series of free film screenings which present interesting perspectives on our common mortality. Each screening is introduced by a local expert, and followed by a discussion of the film.


In a Japan of the near future, government program Plan 75 encourages senior citizens to be voluntarily euthanized to remedy a super-aged society. An elderly woman whose means of survival are vanishing, a pragmatic Plan 75 salesman, and a young Filipino laborer face choices of life and death.


Conversation hosted by Dr. Brian Dowdle (Japanese)
