Vice Studios New Documentary on Exit International: Time to Die
Congratulations to Vice & Time to Die Directors Yonni Usiskin & Matt Shea for winning Best Film at Fragments Film Festival 2019, London.
Filmed over 5 years in the Netherlands, Australia, the US, Canada, Ireland and the UK, VICE Studio’s long-awaited documentary about Exit International, is ‘Time to Die’.
‘Time To Die’ follows four people, all on a mission to end their own lives. Some are old and in pain; others are young but terminally ill; others are dealing with mental health issues and feel that their life is intolerable.
‘As the arguments on an individual’s right to choose the time and manner of their demise rage on, ‘Time To Die’ explores the highly charged issue of assisted dying and assisted suicide and brings to light important questions on both sides of this debate. There are no easy answers.’
The advance screening with a panel discussion with: VICE News’ Hind Hassan, Time To Die’s co-directors Yonni Usiskin and Matt Shea, contributor Chris Nolan & Dr Philip Nitschke was held at Rio Cinema on Wednesday 17 July.
