Going with Love

Documentary | CH 2012 | 45' | Subtitled English

This episode of the thought-provoking and taboo-breaking Chinese documentary format reports on the phenomenon, relatively new to China, of hospices for the terminally ill. Portraying one such facility for cancer patients in Shanghai, along with the people working there, the volunteers helping out and the patients trying to cope with the spectre of imminent death, the programme manages to both touch the viewer with deep emotions of hope, love and loss, and at the same time educate them about the necessities of humane attendance and psychological companionship to the most unfortunate and often forgotten members of society – and about the healing effect it has on the living as well.
