Ethan Sisser, a young man with terminal brain cancer, sits alone in his hospital room.  When he starts livestreaming his death journey on social media, thousands of people around the world join to celebrate his courage. Still, Ethan envisions more – to teach the world how to die without fear.  To do that, he needs to film his death.


Honoring Ethan's wish, his doctor Aditi Sethi transports him to an idyllic house in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. What unfolds next is a story rarely glimpsed: how a community of strangers helps a young man die with grace.


A sensory immersion into leaving the body, The Last Ecstatic Days reveals a man who will not let us forget him – even after he’s taken his final breath.

Discussion to follow with director Scott Kirschenbaum and Ashby Kinch, Dean of University of Montana Graduate School.
