The 2018 Documentary “End Game” highlights the compassionate work done by those who help terminally ill patients cope with death.

Hospice of Santa Barbara (HSB) invites the community to a free movie screening of the 2018 documentary “End Game” on Sunday, August 26.

Directed by Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, “End Game” tells the story of terminally ill patients and the inspiring medical professionals and caregivers who help them come to terms with life and death.

The movie will screen from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Alcazar Theatre in Carpinteria, 4916 Carpinteria Ave. This event is free, however, donations are appreciated.

After the movie, HSB will host a 30-minute panel facilitated by local philanthropist Marybeth Carty, who was also instrumental in the establishment of HSB’s Compassionate Care of Carpinteria program. Other panel speakers include Jeanne West, Susan Copeland, and Dr. Stephen Hosea.
