Flight From Death: The Quest For Immortality

Narrated by Gabriel Byrne (Usual Suspects, Miller's Crossing), this seven-time Best Documentary award-winning film is the most comprehensive and mind-blowing investigation of humankind's relationship with death ever captured on film. Hailed by many viewers as a "life-transformational film," FLIGHT FROM DEATH uncovers death anxiety as a possible root cause of many of our behaviors on a psychological, spiritual, and cultural level. Following the work of the late cultural anthropologist, Ernest Becker, and his Pulitzer Prize-winning book "Denial of Death", this documentary may forever change the way we look at ourselves and the world as well as substantiating Becker's claim that death anxiety is a primary motivator of human behavior, specifically aggression and violence. FLIGHT FROM DEATH features an all-star cast of scholars, authors, philosophers, and researchers culminating in a film that is "not only thought-provoking but also entertaining and put together with a lot of class" (Eric Campos, Film Threat). Three years in the making and beautifully photographed in eight different countries, FLIGHT FROM DEATH is "a stimulating, ultimately life-affirming film, filled with big ideas and revelatory footage" (Jeff Shannon, Seattle Times).
