Casey Affleck & Joaquin Phoenix to co-produce end of life special

Categories: In The Media.

The programme, set to premiere on the National Geographic channel on 13 June, will explore the final weeks of 32-year-old Renee Heidtman, a young woman with terminal cancer.

Using documentary footage, home movies, personal testimonials and interviews with friends and family members, ‘I Am Dying’ will observe death through Ms Heidtman’s own eyes.

“Our hope was to reframe the end of life experience with a direct and celebratory point of view,” said Affleck.
