Greenie Films announces a special screening on Wednesday December 3, 2008 at 7:30pm of their feature-length documentary, "A Finished Life: The Goodbye & No Regrets Tour" in honor of World AIDS Day.
OUTFEST calls the film “...a powerful and moving documentary... an honest and unflinching chronicle of a man's decision to live the final chapter of his life on his own terms.”
The 81 minute documentary, directed by Barbara Green & Michelle Boyaner, chronicles the story of Gregg Gour, a 48-year-old gay man with AIDS who, when given six months to live, takes the road trip of his life.
Gregg had been HIV positive for 24 years and during that time the side effects of the medications made him increasingly sicker than the virus itself. For some time he felt that his quality of life had diminished considerably, so he chooses to go off his meds and no longer fight death.
After giving away all of his belongings, Gregg buys an RV and travels across the United States with his dog, saying goodbye to family and friends who must come to terms with Gregg's decision: That rather than suffer a long, painful death, he will end his own life before allowing the progressing illness to take away his independence.
A Finished Life: The Goodbye & No Regrets Tour is a loving and powerful portrait of Gregg's journey, which is at turns heartbreaking and surprisingly upbeat. The filmmakers were given access to his most personal moments, and the result is an open and unwavering chronicle of a man's decision to live the final chapter of his life his way, and how that decision affects the people that have shared his life with him.
The Santa Barbara Independent said, “.... A Finished Life is one of the most positive, life-affirming films out there.”
