  In this current age we feel compelled to share every aspect of our lives. We blog about diets, health, fitness. We tweet intimate details of our relationships and mental health conditions. So it was only a matter of time before someone decided toshare their death via a BBC documentary.

  如今这个时代,我们不由自主要分享生活的方方面面。我们在博客上记录饮食、健康还有健身。我们在写推文记录我们恋情的私密细节和我们的精神健康状态。所以,要是有人决定通过BBC纪录片来分享其死亡也只是时间问题而已。

  That someone was 57-year-old Simon Binner, the subject of How to Die: Simon's Choice. But rather than just a crazed bid for attention, what Simon created was an incredibly sad yet important film as his "choice" was an assisted suicide.

  那人便是57岁的西蒙·宾那,《如何死亡:西蒙的选择》所表现的对象。倒不是为了夺人眼球,西蒙所创作的是部极度悲伤却又交关重要的影片,他的“选择”便是安乐死。

  Filmed in 2015, the documentary followed Simon after his diagnosis with motor neurone disease. He immediately made the decision that – when the time was right – he would end his own life.

  纪录片拍摄于2015年,从西蒙被诊断为运动神经元疾病开始跟拍。西蒙当下即做决定,若时机合适,他便结束自己的生命。

  Within nine months of diagnosis Simon had been stripped of his voice, his mobility, his dignity and what he described as his "manliness". The declining movement in his hands – which he used to type letters, texts and emails – was the last straw.

  九个月的诊断期里,西蒙失声不能语、丧失了行动能力、失去了尊严和他所谓的“男子气概”。他过去用来打信件、发短信和电子邮件的双手一日不及一日灵活,成了压垮他的最后一根稻草。

  This film should be compulsory viewing because if there are people out there who are genuinely more terrified of not dying than they are of dying, then their voices should be heard.

  这部影片一定要看 ,要是别处还有人比起死亡而言,真心更畏惧其不得终了,他们的心声我们一定要聆听。
