Griefwalker is a National Film Board of Canada feature documentary film, directed by Tim Wilson. It is a lyrical, poetic portrait of Stephen Jenkinsons work with dying people. Filmed over a twelve year period, Griefwalker shows Jenkinson in teaching sessions with doctors and nurses, in counselling sessions with dying people and their families, and in meditative and often frank exchanges with the films director while paddling a birch bark canoe about the origins and consequences of his ideas for how we live and die. If you love somebody, if you care about the world that is to come after you, and if you want somebody to be spared the lunacy of what you have seen you have got to die wise.
