About Film


The Gifts of Grief is a unique film about the possibility of another side of suffering, told through the personal and inspiring stories with people who have confronted remarkable losses and have found a way to transform their grief into a greater appreciation of life. As we watch these people grapple with difficult emotional and spiritual pain with a mixture of grace, dignity, fear, vulnerability, soulfulness and courage, we are asked to open to our own pain honestly and directly and discover what lessons death and grief have taught us. We explore the possibility that grief while very painful, is one of the closely guarded keys to true transformation and joy.

The Gifts of Grief asks a timely important question – How do we transform the tragedy of our losses into a life altering experience that deepens and enriches our lives? This 52 minute film invites the viewer to discover for themselves the possibility of true gifts emerging from their own losses.
