Blue Roses is an inspiring documentary film about Bob Jamison and other frontline community health workers who provide care for Ottawa’s inner-city rooming house residents, who often face poverty, addiction and mental illness. In the process, they challenge our conventional understanding of palliative (end of life) care. Blue Roses provides a fascinating and poignant look at life in rooming houses and the difficulties in providing palliative care to this invisible community. It captures the compelling, and often heart breaking, challenges that Bob and others with lived experience face in bringing loving kindness and a voice to their community.
Attend a free screening of the documentary Blue Roses, followed by an informative discussion involving people with lived experience, frontline health workers and city councillor(s) about rooming houses and palliative care for people experiencing poverty, mental illness and addictions.
Presented by Kublacom Pictures, in association with Ottawa Inner City Health and One World Arts
