Love In Our Own Time film + discussion
IMDB User Review
Profoundly moving & promoted rich discussion with fellow psychologists.

This is an amazing and beautiful film which I have now watched several times and also used with a peer group of psychologists for our own professional development. It provoked very rich discussion about birth, life and death, relating it to our own personal experiences and reflecting on our own practice with clients. I see it as having potential use with a wide variety of health and helping professionals as it certainly deepened my own appreciation of what it is like for the families in the film. I don't think I have seen anything close to this in depicting so well the process of dying and that experience for the terminally ill and their families. The film is able to balance this with sensitive use of space and imagery that enables reflection during the course of the film. Showing the beginnings and endings of life, this film took me deeply into my own reflections on life. I am grateful to the individuals and families who were willing to share their intimate moments and enable us to see what is far too often concealed from view in our society.
Love in Our Own Time is a documentary about the extraordinariness of ordinary life, and visits those moments both simple and sublime that compose the lives we lead.
Following seven ordinary Australian families we travel the length and breadth of human experience and bear witness to lives both beginning and ending: John, who has just retired and is about to explore the world with his much loved wife, finds out instead that he has terminal cancer and must live out the rest of his life in a few short, sweet months. Kate and Daniel are approaching the other end of life with the birth of their fifth and final child. Meanwhile seventy-five year old Jutta’s life springs into focus as her loving family gathers to hold vigil over her last days. At a nearby birth centre Fiona and Mel are excited at the prospect of meeting their second child, while eighty-something Doug is determined to leave hospital and spend his last days at home with his family. Watching over all of these comings and goings at the hospital is Noelene, to whom life is a ‘very strange’ and interesting business.
Interwoven through these powerful stories and others is a journey to the heart of what it is to be human.
