The film BEING THERE – DA SEIN shares the stories of four individuals from different cultures providing end-of-life care. By confronting their own mortality, they examine how to show up for people in the last period of life and how this connects to their own journey again and again, reflecting upon their relation to death and dying.

The protagonists (Ron Hoffman, USA, Elisabeth Würmli, Switzerland, Alcio Braz, Brazil and Sonam Dölma, Nepal) raise the question of whether we should adopt a new Ars Moriendi in today’s time; a new art of dying – as was the case in the Middle Ages – that would acknowledge dying as a vital part of life which could enrich our lives by consciously dealing with our death.
