Who wants to talk about death? Well… nobody and that’s the problem. By ignoring the elephant in the room you do not make him go away. Life has a way of surprising us and often we put off discussions and decisions until it is too late. Ironically, talking about the end-of-life helps people clarify how they want to live in the here and now - leading to a richer life experience from now until… who knows.

Lately there has been a paradigm shift, with the enormous baby boomer population deciding how they want to live the rest of their lives.
Mortal is the first film that addresses this shift in how we view life and death. It celebrates the importance of end-of-life as much as the beginning of life. We need to make these conversations as mainstream as decisions regarding financial investing and retirement planning. Mortal does just that, by presenting stories that inspire people to engage in defining life choices and decisions that ultimately free us to live our best life fully and fearlessly.

We invite you to experience Mortal and to share it with family, friends, co-workers and anyone who you feel deserves to live more fully in the present. Mortal will help them open a doorway to a spiritual awareness and a way of appreciating the ephemerality and fragility of life.

Final Passages is a non-profit organization, founded in 1995, offering education for personal and legal rights concerning home or family-directed funerals and final disposition (burial and cremation). It is our intention to re-introduce the concept of funerals in the home as a part of family life and as a way to de-institutionalize death. We are dedicated to a dignified and compassionate alternative to current funeral practices.
