Q&A host/facilitator of the Death Cafe Northern Westchester Barbara Sarah

A rare, unflinching invitation into the world of a young artist dying of cystic fibrosis as he and his family navigate the unmapped journey at the end of life. While medical interventions keep him alive well beyond his prognosis, 28-year-old Ethan Rice ponders how long he is willing to fight and what his absence will mean to those he leaves behind. With his art and spirit leavening the darkness, Exit Music presents Rice’s final months, weeks, days, and hours, witnessing death’s transformative influence on a family. Interweaving home movies with Rice’s original animations and music, this is a candid and tough meditation on death and loss.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)
