February 28, 2020
St. Jerome’s University Academic Centre SJ2 2002 Main Level
290 Westmount Rd. N, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada N2L 3G3
Attend a film screening of The Farewell and follow-up discussion from 7:00 – 9:30p.m. as part of the Absent Friends Film Series.
Based on the director’s own life experiences, The Farewell mixes comedy and drama to explore the realities of family dynamics, cultural difference and terminal illness.
The Absent Friends Film Series challenges us to talk about the often taboo topics of death, dying and grief.
Supported by the RIA, the Hospice of Waterloo Region is collaborating with St. Jerome’s University Lectures in Catholic Experience to host a series of films. Each showing will be followed by a small group discussion led by special guests. The series hopes to inspire us to build a more compassionate community.
