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
