Self Deliverance
This unflinching portrait was filmed in Australia's Northern Territory, where Parliament was debating the world's first legislation guaranteeing terminally ill people the right to a physician-assisted death. It includes articulate testimony from physicians on both sides of this controversial issue, but its primary focus is on one courageous man's determination to confront death in his own way.

A Fate Worse than Death? follows several families who must decide whether to withdraw artificial life support from a loved one in a coma or vegetative state (50 Minutes.)

Wipe Out
Brain injury is the leading cause of death and disability for men under the age of 35. Narrated by an Olympic gold snowboarder, this documentary tells the story of three young men living with permanent brain damage from head injuries while pursuing extreme sports.
