Give Life Alberta
'Charades'
13 May 2024 60s
Saying the unsayable.
by Jason Stone

It can be strangely difficult to explain to those around you that you have decided to carry a donor card. It's difficult to understand why this feels so complicated, but perhaps we worry that such a brazen acceptance of our own mortality will make our nearest and dearest think that we have given up!

In this entertaining film for a Canadian awareness campaign called Give Life Alberta, a woman attempts to tell her family that she has made this choice through the medium of charades. The increasingly frenetic guessing is a cipher for the idea that her family will not easily accept her decision... but this proves to be misdirection, as they easily take it in their stride when she finally spits it out.

Persuading people to carry donor cards is as important as it is difficult. A clear expression of your wishes will massively increase the chance of you saving one or more lives if you are unfortunate enough to lose your own, and this film seems likely to open a few handy conversations about this vital subject.
