LET ME DOWN EASY
Portraits of the human struggle and how the human spirit faces some of life’s most difficult questions and moments.
What relationships do people have with their bodies? What happens when a body breaks down? What kind of healthcare do people receive? What keeps people alive? How much control do people have over their health? How do people face the realities of disease and dying? What happens when people die? There are as many answers to these questions as there are people in the world. Anna Deavere Smith uses the exact words of 20 different people as they speak to these hard questions. Professional athletes, a New Orleans doctor during Hurricane Katrina, a former supermodel, the mother of a young woman with AIDS, a minister and others: each person has a different perspective, different experiences, different feelings. Combined, they create a portrait of human struggle and how the human spirit faces some of life’s most difficult questions and moments.
