Choosing to Die is a powerful documentary about euthanasia.
Narrated by Terry Pratchett, the author of bestselling Discworld novels, it explores concept of assisted death in a direct, almost shocking way.
The documentary stresses an individual's right to choose, seriously neglected in today's legislation. As horrible as the concept of euthanasia can seem, there are situations when it can prove a blessing.
Pratchett, who is personally concerned with euthanasia due to his Alzheimer's, actually meets people who had chosen assisted death and talks with them on camera. He accompanies them to Switzerland, to the headquarters of Dignitas (organization helping with euthanasia) and... Well, I can't say anymore without spoilers. Expect to be stunned.
Choosing to Die caused quite a stir, with numerous protests voiced after the broadcast. Despite the criticism, it was showered with awards, including Emmy for Best Documentary in 2012.
Surprisingly, Choosing to Die is not available on Amazon.
