The Messengers

Lucian Perkins

USA, 2016

 

Arriving on his birthday, Elijah came to Joseph’s House to die. There was a cake waiting for him that day; 8 months later, he was still sharing the love. People like Elijah can almost forget to die at D.C.’s welcoming hospice for homeless HIV/AIDS patients. But die they will, and assuring that their death means something, both to the patient and the caregivers, is what Joseph’s House is all about. The big, slightly funky old home on a residential side street employs nurses and other providers, but The Messengers focuses on Joseph’s House’s rotating crew of fresh-faced yearlong interns. Young enough to have their hearts opened, then broken, by their newfound family, they share the profound experience in a film that gives full human measure to the question “Who rescued whom?” To die among friends is the least we can ask, and the most we can give.—Judy Bloch
