Powerful story

Former Vancouver Island resident Mary Kirov Zografov returns to the island tonight, almost eight years after she died.

Filmmakers Andrea and James Cribb are presenting Death by Joy , the documentary film about the last days of Mary’s remarkable journey onward.

 

Diagnosed with a brain tumour at the age of 55, Mary said no to aggressive medical intervention, choosing instead to embark on a clear-headed quest to find the true meaning of healing. What contributes to the wonder of this story is that Mary’s life was not always one of joy, nor, sadly, was it unique. The film is  being shown at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre tonight (Friday), November 2 at 7:30 p.m. and at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre on Saturday, also starting at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $10.  — Submitted by James Cribb
