Film Screening & Discussion: "The Last Campaign of Governor Booth Gardner'

Sunday, September 13th, 2015 3:00 pm
Free & Open to All
 In 1994, a year after serving two terms as one of the most popular governors in modern Washington State history, Booth Gardner was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.  In 2008, as his health continued to deteriorate, he returned to the political spotlight, this time as the driving force behind a ballot initiative that would legalize one’s choice to die.  Oscar®-nominated in 2009 in the category of Best Documentary (Short Subject), THE LAST CAMPAIGN OF GOVERNOR BOOTH GARDNER chronicles Gardner’s controversial crusade, looking at both sides of this hotly debated issue.  The film tracks Gardner and his supporters in their efforts to pass Initiative 1000 (I-1000), also known as the Death with Dignity Act, in Washington State, following the debates the campaign provokes, as well as the toll it takes on Gardner’s health.  Along with Gardner and his supporters, Film Director Junge and his crew had extensive access to opponents of I-1000. The film runs about 40 minutes. Marie Manis and Betsy Van Dorn of Compassion & Choices will lead a discussion after the film and also talk about the campaign to pass a similar initiative here in Massachusetts. "Not long ago, my beloved friend Lauren was diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy, a debilitating neurological disorder that slowly robbed her of movement and speech.  Although MSA is a fatal disease, Lauren was reluctant to acknowledge the finality of her diagnosis.  She sought out alternative treatment, and met each day with humor, courage and dignity. Throughout, I stayed by her side, as did a devoted niece. In 2013, Lauren died at home, surrounded by her loving family and friends. For over thirty years, Compassion and Choices has championed the right of individuals to choose their own path at the end of life. Lauren’s decisions– to face her illness on her own terms and to die at home--were personal and private choices.  Whatever one’s personal decisions, Compassion and Choices provides support, resources and free telephone consultation with experts in end-of-life care. I am committed to passing a death-with-dignity law here in Massachusetts and I am inspired by the Booth Gardner story..  This film provides an opportunity to understand, on a personal level, the importance of having choice at the end of life. Please come see this film and bring a friend. Whatever side of the issue you're on, it will help you gain a better understanding of this important issue."  Paula Erickson, Wellfleet
