You are cordially invited to view the new award-winning film, Jack Has A Plan, hosted by Hemlock Society San Diego and End of Life Choices California. It’s the story of Jack Tuller, whose career as a budding San Francisco musician was altered in 1994, when he was diagnosed with a terminal condition and given six months to live. Jack Has a Plan tells the story of the following 25 years, as Jack dodges one bullet after the next. But Jack somehow turns his predicament into a Left Coast art-performance project, complete with experimental movies, diaries, and funky dance moves. Finally, Jack engineers a graceful exit from life’s stage. San Francisco Examiner says “As joyous, thrilling and funny as any film about death could be.” Click to watch a trailer for the documentary
General admission tickets are $12, and can be purchased here. The film will be followed by a Q&A and panel discussion with Donald Moore MD, Board Member, Hemlock Society of San Diego; Judy Epstein, Executive Director, End of Life Choices California; and Janet Hager, Interim President, Hemlock Society of San Diego.
End of Life Choices California’s mission is to provide Californians the information and support to successfully navigate their legal end-of-life options. Relevant topics include Advance Care Planning; the California End of Life Option Act (EOLA); eligibility requirements for Medical Aid in Dying (MAiD); and Voluntarily Stopping Eating and Drinking (VSED)–a legal option in all 50 states. Our volunteers are very knowledgeable about both hospice and palliative care and can explain the differences between the two services.
