Kudos from Eleanor Clift, a contributing editor for Newsweek magazine, regular panelist on The McLaughlin Group and author of Two Weeks of Life: A Memoir of Love, Death and Politics which tells the parallel stories of her husband’s death at home with hospice alongside the national debate over the Terri Schiavo case.
“Loss comes to us all, and through the trained eye of grief counselor Judith Burdick, we learn up close in “Transforming Loss” how several very courageous yet ordinary people found their way back to meaningful life when death intruded and changed life in an instant.”
This inspirational documentary examines and demonstrates the many positive ways people cope with tragic loss through death.
“Transforming Loss” follows six families through the grief process. Incredibly, these individuals have not only survived their profound losses, but have become more than who they were before.
We learn that personal loss actually fuels a fresh energy, which feeds the broken parts. As we heal, a deep desire emerges to help others experiencing similar loss—to be the inspiration and the example of one who has survived and transformed through perseverance and faith.
Judith Burdick’s goal, as a documentary filmmaker is to provide an intimate window into their heartfelt loss, grief and healing journey. Viewers feel their heart-wrenching loss and cheer for these incredible, everyday people who have found their way back.
“Rather than buckling beneath the weight of the loss of my young husband, I allowed it to empower me as a person and then as a healer. This film examines and demonstrates the many positive ways people cope with tragic loss through death. These individuals have not only survived their profound losses, but have become more than who they were before. As a part of the healing journey, they have all chosen to help others. This is the gift and the hope depicted in the larger story.” – Judith R. Burdick

Why should I screen “Transforming Loss – A Documentary” in my community?
“Transforming Loss – A Documentary” will educate on many ways to heal through the grief process, though none as profoundly effective as helping others. Through the six stories featured in the film, my goal as a documentary filmmaker is to provide an intimate window into the grief journey in a real and heartfelt way.
Just imagine how you and your organization can use a high-profile, high-impact screening of the film to (1) reach out to your community, constituents or customers; (2) show your appreciation to volunteers, employees, or donors; (3) engage conference and convention attendees; (4) educate patients and families; or (5) fundraise!
