Philip Seymour Hoffman's Poignant Thoughts On Happiness

by Wochit 0:44 mins

Philip Seymour Hoffman said in 2012, "Learning how to die is therefore learning how to live". To Hoffman, there was nothing as crucial to happiness as the awareness and acceptance of death. This candid chat is a segment taken from a larger conversation with The New School philosophy professor Simon Critchley at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City. Blank on Blank took the poignant interview and added animation to underscore the message. Hoffman passed away in February, giving the video a surreal tone as he speaks about death as an alien concept, far away and intangible.
