While it has been stated that the dominant culture of
North America is death-denying and death-phobic, this
statement is rarely elaborated. The documented
experiences and perspectives of dying and death in
three selected films offer the opportunity to observe
the discourses of dying and death. A dialogue between
two Canadian documentary films, Dying at Grace and
Kids Care, and the narrative foreign Dutch film
Antonia s Line, provide the occasion for illustration
and examination of the discourse of dying and death
in Canada and our general fearful countenance toward
death. Authored from the perspective of clinical
experience in community palliative care and a view of
medicine as culture, the influence of the
contemporary character of North America upon the
experience of and response to dying and death are
considered. This exploration affirms the existence of
a fear of dying and death, on individual and
collective levels, advocating for accommodation of
this fear in the orientation of professional
caregivers of those who are dying and their families.
Though a terminal diagnosis may be one''s last chance
to learn about dying and death, fear need not be the
dominant response to death.
