Aside From That: A Film About Everyone's Least Favorite Topic (Official Selection, Rhode Island International Film Festival 2015, Boston Film Festival 2015, Big Water Film Festival 2015, REMI Award, WorldFest Houston 2016) How do we live, knowing we are going to die? Is there a best practice for thinking about mortality? In search of answers, we probed the minds of atheists and agnostics, Buddhists, Jews and Christians, physicians and philosophers, authors and academics, a legendary stand-up comic and scores of random pedestrians. But at the heart of the story are a terminally ill poet determined to become a clown, a cancer-stricken student facing 50/50 odds of survival, and a combat medic whose traumatic experiences erase his fear of death. How will you live, knowing you are going to die?
