Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death
“Most people want to avoid the subject of death, not see a two-hour film about it. Watching “Into the Night” makes clear that it’s a lot more about life.” David Bauder, Associated Press

About The Event
INTO THE NIGHT: PORTRAITS OF LIFE AND DEATH is a documentary from Oscar-nominated, Emmy, Peabody and DuPont award-winning film producer Helen Whitney. Into the Night broadcast nationally on PBS March 26, 2018.
INTO THE NIGHT presents intimate, candid portraits of individuals from all walks of life, young and old, for whom death is no longer a far-off abstraction. Each of them has been shocked into mortality–and are forever changed. For some, witnessing the death of others has shaped their life’s direction, their world view and their beliefs. Others, facing terminal illnesses for years, confront their imminent end with unexpected epiphanies. INTO THE NIGHT brings lyrical insight to this often taboo topic. These dramatic accounts challenge, unsettle, and inspire.
Featured stories include: Gabriel Byrne, Adam Frank, Caitlyn Doughty, Phyllis Tickle, and others.
