Featuring illustrated true accounts of individual end of life experiences during or following the death of a loved one, Inquiry into the ELE is a filmic essay exploring the boundaries of life, death, and what may lie beyond.

DETAILS 

Inquiry Into the ELE is a filmic essay focusing on end of life experiences (commonly known as ELEs) and their role in helping us understand both the emotional intricacy of grief and the ways in which we construct our beliefs about human consciousness and a possible afterlife. End of life experiences have been reported throughout all cultures, times, and places, and can be interpreted as premonitions, deathbed visions, golden light, changes in the temperature or atmosphere, or eerie coincidences.

 

PROCESS

In 2015, I began recording numerous ELE accounts through interactions with hospice nurses, chaplains, social scientists, therapists, and people of all spiritual backgrounds and capacities. These recordings illuminate experiences that are profoundly meaningful but are rarely discussed due to fear of social rejection. 

Currently, I am developing the next phase of the project, an experimental filmic essay, which illustrates and enhances the audio accounts through the use of imagery, animation, objects, and interviews. Ultimately, I will design the final project to engage with the public, creating space for reflection about death, grief, and other universal human experiences.
