Over the past two years, producer/filmmaker Kevin Dunn has travelled to Belgium, The Netherlands, Canada and the USA to explore the impact euthanasia and assisted suicide laws have on families and society – for a new film called “Fatal Flaws” which we hope to release in the spring of 2018. It’s been an incredible journey to say the least. And they are still in production.
Wherever you stand on the issue, it’s impossible to ignore the cultural shift in attitude towards euthanasia and assisted suicide. What was once considered murder under the law is now being accepted as medical ‘treatment’ in many countries. However, even the most ardent promoters of these laws are now saying the ‘genie is out of the bottle’ and are severely questioning where these laws have taken society.
We’ve all heard the tragic and much publicized stories of people who have chosen an assisted death. Tragic indeed. However, this film will focus on stories seldom heard in mainstream media: testimonies from those whose lives have been dramatically affected by a culture that sees ‘killing’ as a form of ‘caring.’ To be clear, the pro-euthanasia lobby cringes when he uses words like ‘murder’ or ‘killing’ in his interviews. One group asked him not to use the term ‘assisted suicide’ as it might offend. One national broadcaster didn’t want him using the term ‘euthanasia’. However, he prefers to stay away from euphemisms when dealing with such important issues as life and death. Especially after hearing stories such as Candice’s.
In this first sneak preview, he travels to St. Anthony, Newfoundland, Canada to interview 25 year old Candice Lewis and her mother Sheila Elson. Here they tell him how, during emergency hospital stay, doctors tried to pressure Candice into to an assisted death. One year later, Candice – who lives with Cerebral Palsy – is back doing what she loves most, painting and spending time with her family. Candice’s testimony is featured in the upcoming film “Fatal Flaws” being released in 2018 from DunnMedia in association with Euthanasia Prevention Coalition. We need your support to compete this film. –
