About the Show

"Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death," a documentary by Director Helen Whitney, explores the various ways we think about death -- not death in general, but our own in particular. It is the great unanswered question. How do we live with death in our eye? What are the stories we tell ourselves as we go into the night -- or into the light? "Into the Night" features nine fascinating men and women from all walks of life, all ages, believers and unbelievers, well-known and obscure. For them, death is no longer an abstraction. Whether through a dire prognosis, the imminence of their own death, the loss of a loved one, a sudden epiphany, or a temperament born to question, these are people who have truly awakened to their mortality.
