RELICS, a short film on assisted dying

After a year of festivals, just now the film Relics has been released on line. Relics is a short film about a salesman who tries to sell his miraculous cleaning machine to a sick woman and her skeptical daughter, on the day that the woman asked her daughter to help her end her own life. It’s a comedy! Sort of… The film blog ‘Eye for Film’ calls the film “…a sensitive, uplifting testament to the bravery that can appear… deep in the human spirit. It manages to address in 15 minutes what many longer, big budget films fail to do at all.Relics will be used in workshops about assisted death; the humour of the film can help open up a discussion about end of life choices.
