Synopsis

For twenty years, writer and filmmaker Kevin Toolis sought to understand death as he encountered famine, war and plague across the world. But it was closer to home, on the island of his forebears in County Mayo, that he found some kind of answer.

He discusses his beautiful memoir, in which he recounts his experiences of watching his father’s passing and offers a broader account of how we face up to mortality.
