When My Time Comes

October 23, 2022 - 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

A documentary film by Diane Rehm. Free to the Public.

Spurred on by the death of her husband, Diane Rehm crossed the country to take an in-depth look at medical aid in dying. She spoke to people on all sides of the issue, uncovering the pros and cons, and the facts and the myths surrounding this controversial practice that is now legal in nine states and the District of Columbia.

In February 2020 Rehm published a book containing 40 interviews with people involved in and holding different views on questions related to the end-of-life care and the right-to-die movement. Titled When My Time Comes: Conversations About Whether Those Who Are Dying Should Have the Right to Determine When Life Should End, its foreword was contributed by John Grisham.

She then collaborated with Joe Fab on this  documentary with the same title released in 2021. Watch the Trailer
