Ethan Sisser, a young man afflicted with brain cancer, sits alone in his hospital room. When he begins live-streaming his death journey on social media, thousands of people around the world join him and celebrate his courage. Still, Ethan envisions more – to teach the world how to die without fear. To honor his final wish of filming his death, his doctor, Aditi Sethi, transports him to a quiet house in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. What unfolds next is a story that's rarely glimpsed: how a community of strangers helps an unhoused man die on his own terms.
A sensory immersion into leaving the body “The Last Ecstatic Days” reveals a man who will not let us forget him – even after he’s taken his final breath.
Join our team in bringing to light a world where life is a celebration and death isn't taboo; where strangers become friends until the end; where the living and the dying truly come together. "The Last Ecstatic Days" is not just a film, it’s an experience!

“The goal of the conscious living and dying movement, also known as the community deathcare movement, is to make the act of dying a loving and communal experience again. As humankind has made incredible strides in prolonging life, we have increasingly forgotten that death is a part of life and should be embraced alongside all of life’s stages. This matters because how a culture treats death is how that culture treats its dying. When we neglect and ignore death’s inevitability, we neglect and ignore the dying. In this way, our fear of death can become self-fulfilling. But accepting and embracing death allows dying to be done in community and surrounded by love. The love becomes self-fulfilling. Crucially, how we think about death informs how we live.” - Hannah Fowler, Impact Producer, The Last Ecstatic Days & Director of Education, Center for Conscious Living & Dying
