      This seven-time Best Documentary award-winning film examines the relationship of human violence to their fear of death, as related our subconscious influences. Narrated by Gabriel Byrne, Flight From the Death: The Quest for Immortality explores death anxiety as a potential root cause of many of our human behaviours. Covering everything from psychological, cultural and spiritual level.This eye-opening film is heavily influenced by cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker’s view. Flight From the Death: The Quest for Immorality features interviews with a number of modern philosophers, teachers and psychiatrists. Introducing Robert J. Lifton, Irvin Yalom, Daniel Liechty, Sam Keen and Merlyn Mowrey. As a viewer, we’re introduced to a group of social psychologists who develop research supporting what they refer to as Terror management theory.

      Spreading over the last twenty-five years there has been a series of laboratory studies, approximately 300 showing that faint reminders of death on a subconscious level motivates a large number of subjects to show biased and xenophobic type behaviours.

      Released in 2003, the film won Best Documentary at the following festivals: Beverly Hills Film Festival (Audience Choice – 2003), Ohio Independent Film Festival (2003), Silver Lake FIlm Festival (2003), Malibu Film Festival (2004), Northern Lights Documentary Film Festival (2004), Northwest Film Forum (2004), and the Rhode Island International Film Festival (2004).

      This was a wonderful exploration of how human beings struggle to deal with the eventuality of death through culture, war, and denial. The beginning and final portions of the film were very inspirational and thought provoking. Also, I felt like the speakers in the film were well chosen for their knowledge and ability to articulate the psychology/philosophy of death-anxiety. I loved this documentary and could see exactly how it was award-winning.

      The most refreshing, penetrating, and critical film I’d ever seen. This is the kind of documentary I have been searching for many times, and finally I have found it. Thank You so much.

      I like to watch this doc. but like many others on this site it has add ware or something attatched that will not let me watch it. I hit play it takes me to some page to sign up for a service that streams movies to your pc. Why put it up if your going to attatch crap to it that doesn’t allow people too see it. How did all these people watch it, surely you all didn’t sign up for the service. When I choose to download the doc. nothing happens just like when I try and down load anything from this site, I click and nothing happens. If this is a windows seven issue I swear i am going back to XP. Everything I used to enjoy doing on computers is not compatable with windows seven- can’t play diablo, can’t use my home studio setup, my printer doesn’t even work.

      well don’t I feel like an ass, it works all the sudden. I clicked play again and again and finally i got the doc.

    • John Seals

      nevermind I give up. Now it just buffers over and over.
