Death Makes Life Possible (film)

Death Makes Life Possible will be broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network on October 1 at 8:30 PM ET.

The film follows cultural anthropologist and scientist Marilyn Schlitz as she explores the mysteries of life and death from a variety of perspectives and world traditions.  

Death Makes Life Possible looks at how popular culture deals with the ever-present fear many have about our own mortality. Interviews with mental health experts, cultural leaders, and scientists explore the meaning of death and how we can learn to live without fear. The interviews and evidence presented are interwoven with personal stories of people facing their own death as well as those who report encounters beyond death.
