Movies | 07/15/2021 | 7:00PM
After the death of her beloved husband, John Rehm, to Parkinson’s disease, Peabody Award-winning journalist Diane Rehm began to examine physician-assisted dying laws. Interweaving the Rehms’ experience with those of other patients and families from across the U.S. along with expert opinion, this documentary feature offers a moving and informative examination of the right to die movement and the facts and misinformation surrounding this controversial practice. There will be a post-film discussion with director Joe Fab, executive producer Diane Naughton, and subject Diane Rehm.
Diane Rehm will sign copies of When My Time Comes, the book that inspired the documentary, in the Ballroom following the event. Copies of When My Time Comes can be purchased on-site in the main Lobby prior to and after the screening. Thank you to New Dominion Bookshop for their support of the book sales and signing.
The screening and discussion of When My Time Comes is supported by VPM PBS.
