This event explores near death experiences and how they affect people's lives. We explore the experiences of those who have been on, and beyond, the edge of death and lived to tell the tale.
The event includes a programme of short poetic films about life, death and what may or may not lie beyond, as well discussion with speakers including Christopher French, Professor of Psychology and Co-ordinator of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London.
