The documentary “Life While We Die” by Christine Albeck Børge will premiere on DR1 on June 22, 2020 at 8 p.m. If you miss it, it will show again on June 28 at 12:50 p.m. Alternatively it is available for streaming on DRTV (and until June 15, 2021).


In the documentary, we meet four women – Lisbet, Sabrina, Tine and Marie – who all live with incurable breast cancer.


The four women have been brought together by sharing the same illness. They share their deeply personal reflections on the life that is left, on existence, on intimacy, on relationships, and on guilt. They do not have time for trivialities in their lives. They are close and none of them would do without the group, but what is impossible to disregard is that they will lose each other. Consequently, they are constantly reminded that they can be the next to go.


How do you live your life when serious illness is made part of your identity? When you are the bearer of most people’s greatest fears? Which interactions do you then have with the outside world?



“Livet mens vi dør” er instruktør Christine Albeck Børges instruktørdebut.
