In May 2011, the Lien Foundation launched a campaign to promote a series of 50 short films produced by Moonshine Movies themed around the global crisis of untreated pain and other end-of-life issues. The Moonshine production team filmed in India, Uganda, Singapore, Canada, China, USA, South Africa, Australia, Georgia, Ireland, and Hong Kong. Through interviews with doctors, patients, and their families, they explored a diverse range of cultural perspectives on pain, death and dying.
One short film in the LIFE Before Death series by Moonshine Movies will be released each week for a year, with a feature film and a one-hour television documentary appearing in late 2011. The videos are available here, as well as on the LIFE Before Death YouTube channel. This incredible project was funded in part by IASP, along with the MayDay Fund, Union for International Cancer Control, and The Institute for Palliative Medicine at San Diego Hospice International Programs.
