Inquiry into the ELE is an in-process film study focusing on the moments directly proceeding, during, or right after someone loses a loved one. End-of-Life Experiences (or ELEs) can be described as any sort of deathbed coincidence, premonition, change in atmosphere, or peculiar vision around the time of death. Through interactions with funeral directors, hospice nurses, religious leaders, and people of all spiritual backgrounds, I have accumulated an assemblage of images and oral and written accounts that bridge the mystical gap between the earthly realm and that of the spiritual.
