Terminal Stage (2020) | Global Health Film

Terminal Stage (2020)

Directed by Ilona Gaal and Balázs Wizner, 30 mins

UK Premiere

Is it possible or appropriate to laugh next to someone’s deathbed? Can we be angry at the dying? How can the dignity of life be preserved, even at the very end? 

In Terminal Stage we follow the final three days of sixty-four-year-old Tamás, who has Stage 4 cancer. Calmly and openly our protagonist and his family confront the end of life.
