This Months Film: Stopping For Death
Stopping For Death: The Nurses of Wells House Hospice follows four people working a job few Americans would want: tending to a house full of dying people. They are nurses, but they are also therapists, entertainers, disciplinarians, and, perhaps most importantly, family, to these patients. Filmed at one of the only full-time residential hospices in the country we see these nurses waver between fulfillment and despair, clashing with management and fighting budget cuts while trying to keep life as normal as possible for their dying patients.
This evenings musical performer
Jack Empie began playing guitar spontaneously on a Christmas Day when he discovered a guitar (intended for his younger brother) under the tree. Jack went on to study music at Berkley College and Towson University. His diverse range makes it difficult to place his music in a particular genre but his personal voice is discernible to even an unsophisticated listener. Jack has worked as a professional musician in bands and as a solo performer since he was a teenager. His passion for music is infectious because of his joy in sharing and relating it others. He is presently working to release a new CD and continues to perform at various local venues.
