On Death and Dying Author Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Dies at 78
As reported by A.P. writer Ananda Shorey, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, a psychiatrist who revolutionized the way the world looks at terminally ill patients with her book On Death and Dying and later as a pioneer for hospice care, died at her home in the Arizona desert on Tuesday, August 24, 2004. She was 78. We here at First Run/Icarus Films are saddened by this news. But we are proud to distribute the recent release FACING DEATH, the essential documentary about her life and work. The core of the film consists of conversations with Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in Arizona, as she looks back on her life, describes her childhood and her work, and explains how she herself faces aging and impending death. Interviews with her sisters, friends and colleagues, as well as extensive archival material provide a comprehensive portrait of this extraordinary woman.
