"Death Dinner" Film Screening

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 7th Nov 2017

Death Dinner is an hour-long documentary created by Advantages of Age as the first of their OUTage events funded by the Arts Council. We see 12 people dressed as they would like to be buried or burnt after death, discussing their own relationship with the world of death professionally and personally:

Carla Valentine is a mortician and technical curator at QMUL's Pathology Museum, Caroline Rosie Dent is an end of life doula and Death Café host, Caroline Bobby is a writer and psychotherapist, Dr Douglas Davies is an author and expert in death rituals, Charlie Phillips is a photographer who has documented Afro-Caribbean funerals, Patrick Ardagh-Walter is a soul mid-wife, Hannah Gosh - AKA 'Little Mort' - makes modern mourning jewellery, John Constable wrote The Southwark Mysteries and is a campaigner for Crossbones Graveyard in SE1, Liz Rothschild owns the Westmill Woodland burial ground and is the founder of the Kicking The Bucket Festival in Oxford, Liz Hoggard is a journalist, Rose Rouse and Suzanne Noble are the co-founders of Advantages of Age, one of whose tenets is to open up the dialogue and discussion around death.

Rose Rouse is the Editor of the Advantages of Age online magazine. “We’re the punks of getting older,” she says, “we publish articles that no-one else is doing. We breaking the taboos around death, sex and relationships for those people who want to live untamed lives. Patti Smith is our heroine.” She’s also a journalist, PR and poet.
Suzanne Noble is the innovator behind Advantages of Age website, FB group and Business Academy as well as being a publicist. “Nobody wants to talk about death, despite it being inevitable. We hope, in producing this documentary, we’ve opened up the conversation about it and enabled others to begin to think about their own death too.”
Marlon Rouse Tavares directed Death Dinner. He is a bold young filmmaker from London. His work has covered a challenging and diverse range of subjects, including the Uyghur in China (An Uyghur Odyssey), and a white Muslim (Stop Stopping Me, Channel 4). He has spent the last 6 months working on two new projects set in Mumbai.

Doors open 6:30pm for a 7pm start, allowing attendees to receive a complementary glass of wine (or non-alcoholic equivalent) and browse the museums specimens.

The film lasts an hour and there will be a Q&A session afterwards. Unstructured discussion is encouraged.
