Short Film 39 of 50 in the LIFE Before Death documentary series about the global crisis in untreated pain and the dramatic life changing affect palliative care services can deliver to patients and their families around the world.

In “Rhythm of Life” we discover the healing power of rhythm and music for patients facing life-limiting illness.

We observe drum therapy at St Joseph’s Home in Singapore and music therapy at Caritas Christi Hospice in Melbourne, Australia.

“Rhythm brings people together with connection,” reports maestro Syed Ibrahim (Singapore). “It can’t cure but it heals.”

Featuring: Syed Ibrahhim (Singapore), Dr Mark Boughey (Australia), Bob (Australia).
