Join Dr. Karen Wyatt and her guest Tom Murray, director of the beautiful feature-length documentary Love in Our Own Time. They will discuss the making of this film, which follows the lives of ordinary Australians as they face the big transitions of life: birth and death. “Love in Our Own Time is a film that speaks directly to its audience about the nature of life and death. It is a journey to the heart of what it is to be human that gives us all pause to question the lives we lead.” (from the film’s synopsis) Tom Murray reveals his own inspirations for creating the film and the transformation he experienced during the process.
In this interview you will learn:
- How Tom Murray was inspired to create this film after living and working amongst the Yolngu Aboriginal people
- How this film is being used in medical education settings to increase awareness about the end-of-life
- How you might arrange a screening of Love in Our Own Time for your own community
