Section One: African Continent

View the documentary Dying in Africa: Perspectives on the End of Life in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali and South Africa

and a shorter (20 minute) documentary called The Thing That Happened.

The film Dying in Africa: Perspectives on the End of Life in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, and South Africa(50:00) is a fascinating look at hospice, dying and funeral practices in cultures very unlike ours, and compliments the Stephen Connor webinar you viewed earlier in the course. As you can see on the map, Burkina Faso, Mali and Ghana are all located in West Africa, while South Africa is, well, way south!

Africa Part Two: The Thing That Happened:

In this section we will visit the Hope North Secondary School in Bweyale, Uganda. The school was created as a safe haven for children who had escaped from abduction by the Lord’s Resistance Army, and was established by Kelo Okello Sam. Suffice it to say that Okello himself had been abducted and conscripted into an earlier rebel army, and after a year plus escaped, made his way back and got an education. He also became a performing artist, a husband and a father of 3. When his brother Godfrey Omunye was abducted from his school, and shortly afterwards his home village was attacked and over 300 slaughtered, Okello purchased a tract of land and created this school.

Section Two: India

In this unit you will have an opportunity to view a documentary about death and dying in India, in the city of Varanasi.

According to legend Varanasi was founded by Lord Shiva over 5,000 years ago, making Varanasi a place for Hindu pilgrimage. Located on the banks of the Ganges, there are over 100 “ghats” — loosely translated, “ghat” means “beach” or “dock by the water” or water access. Most of these are for bathing in the Ganges (which is done for religious reasons, the Ganges is seen as a river that is always pure and, by definition, cannot carry disease). Some are for cremation.
