Free Screening – Netflix’s End Game

Special Event

netflix end gameOur UCSF Health Division of Palliative Medicine will sponsor a free screening of Netflix’s powerful new documentary, End Game. End Game follows Steve Pantilat and our palliative care team members, as well as our hospice partners, as they guide patients and their families as they approach the end of life. 

End Game, a Netflix original documentary filmed at UCSF Medical Center and the Zen House is a sad, touching and ultimately hopeful film that tells the story of patients with serious illness and the compassionate care they receive from our Palliative Care team. End Game was directed by Academy Award winning directors Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman and follows the stories of patients and their loved ones as they face serious illness and the end of life. The NY Times named End Game among the Best TV Shows and Movies in May, “[End Game is]… a provocative and intimate look at how doctors, nurses and patients at two San Francisco Bay Area hospitals cope with death. Frank without ever becoming too gloomy, “End Game” urges viewers to think about our last days on Earth not as a heartbreaking tragedy but as an opportunity for true closure.”

Join us for a screening with the entire UCSF community followed by a Q&A with some of the Palliative Care clinicians featured in the film and the producer.
