who should decide when to take a patient off of life support a struggle over those questions us turned a family dispute into an international fuse. there a frenchman has been living in a vegetative state for a decade his wife insists he would prefer he would prefer to die in peace while his parents have appealed to president emmanuel mccall himself in their fight to keep him alive tonight's a family and a nation divided over the right to die i'm called aspen in berlin and this is the day. to talk to sit university hospital have resumed feeding and i drink sing dance form on bad news. is from the soon to be 6 trini upsetting to hear this completely inhumane decision about vincent he doesn't take
1:03 am
vincent's case into account of tools at all to get muscles. are going to be. sickle cell phone he wants to drink bleach in love of course to him just. a. little longer so it's ridiculous when you see the reaction of his parents who are kind of tube used as if they had won the world cup it's unbearable sort of that susie. today is also a victory for brown someone bad a disabled person with his limits and we must accept him like that. also coming up on the day it could be the penultimate film for legendary director quentin tarantino if he sticks with his pledge to retire after 10 movies it debuted today at con and appropriately this one is all about hollywood. we get into a fight high accident. i go to jail. anybody accidentally kills anybody in
1:04 am
a fight they go to jail it's called manslaughter. a big welcome to our viewers on p.b.s. in the united states and across the world we begin the day with the debate over the right to die several landmark cases of push that emotional issue from the hospital room into the public light and turn the names of people like terri scheibel into international rallying cries now a new name there the 42 year old has been completely paralyzed since a motorbike accident in 2008 which left him in a vegetative state he was set to be taken off life support after his wife campaigned to allow him to die but now according france has upheld an appeal by his parents and ordered him to be kept alive that decision has split his family and the
1:05 am
nation. as doctors at this french hospital began shutting down there's life support an injunction came from a paris court doctors must resume his treatment. and 42 year old had been hospitalized in the state of minimal consciousness since the 2008 motorcycle accident. his wife believes he has the right to die it is his parents who have been fighting to keep him on life support. the lawyer representing their case called it a victory for justice souter was see owners will do you every. disaster known today is a victory for bear who will finally be accepted for who he is namely the disabled person because it limits his weaknesses and we must accept him like that to tell you clearly he knew the ripon we must take him as he is and we must treat him as he is the solution for of us bear is not for him to be eliminated either directly or by
1:06 am
stopping his dietitians freshman year. just went by and then you must ensure we do so in new york this year. it is the latest episode in a bitter legal battle that has divided non-dance family and friends earlier the media swooped in as vast number of parents prepared for what they thought might be their final goodbye with their son. he still couldn't do they are killing him they're killing him to. do that. in 2013 lambaste doctors recommended ending his treatment his wife his nephew and several siblings have supported the doctors decision to let him die. for you so this is the 1st time i've told myself it's going to have some guts and everything is being done to make it happen so i'm quite serene and ready for it and. there's parents have brought several cases before french courts and the european court of human rights
1:07 am
and repeated efforts to prevent his doctors from ending his life support. monday's late decision from the paris court of appeals ordered care to be continued until u.n. committee could consider an appeal from lambaste parents. this is of course a passionate debate and joining me now is bobby schindler he's the president of the terri schiavo life and hope network which advocates for paid. right to life and he's the brother of terri schiavo whose life was at the center of a similar land mark case in the united states mr schindler thank you so much for joining us 1st of all you know just going back to mr lum bear i mean this is the case of just one man and yet his face is getting so much national and even international attention why do you think that is i think it's similar to my sister's case i would get asked the same question why did terri various cases get so much national international connection i think because people understand when you have parents that are willing and wanting to care for their child why
1:08 am
were i that is not being allowed to happen and when the alternative is to deliberately and purposely starving to hydrate this person the deaths are then people don't understand it and i'm glad to see the support the parents are receiving for wanting to care for the disabled son now you support the parents efforts and in this case and on best case to keep him alive that's despite though his wife saying that his own personal wishes were to not live in a quote unquote vegetative state and shouldn't personal wishes of the person involved in the case be the deciding factor here. why imply to say that it's unclear this is it wasn't terri's case this was hearsay evidence and terri's case that she wanted to die. and i disagree with some of the language that's being used here we're not allowing vincent to die he's not dying we have to understand there's nothing extraordinary keeping vincent arrives here is not
1:09 am
terminal this is not an end of life situation the only thing keeping vincent alive was the same thing keeping terri alive which is food and water the same thing that keeps all of us alive vincent like my sister terry has trouble swallowing and therefore he needs a feeding tube to receive his food and hydration but aside from that there's nothing keeping him alive so what would be doing here here is deliberately ending vincent's life would be removing his food and hydration and he would start the process of death by dehydration and starvation this is only becoming an end of life issue because we're making it warm we're removing his only means of care basic care which is through hydration and i think it's unthinkable it wasn't too long ago where the thought of starving in the hydrating at the sable person to death would have been barbaric but today that particular in america and i'm sure globally this is happening routinely and it's been accepted and i don't quite understand it
1:10 am
because watching someone die by the hydration starvation is actually is absolutely inhumane it's barbaric and i can understand the parents and their willingness loving committed vincent to come unconditionally why they want to care for him many on the other side of the bait on the right to die debate you know they they would say this is not necessarily about life or death it's about quality of life and if someone like lambada were to say i would prefer not to spend the next 152030 years in a hospital bed i would prefer to pass peacefully what's your response to that in terms of quality of life not just life itself. well we don't know that and i don't like the term quality of life you know it's interesting there have been several cases where patients there are some of conditions to my sister terri vincent lambert but at the emerge from this condition and none of them have ever expressed after they've been actually become they've emerged from that is never none of them ever
1:11 am
expressed that they wanted to die or they didn't want to live in that condition in fact it was quite the opposite that they were a static that they were given that chance at life so this whole notion that this person want to live in this condition or or the quality of life is such that that gives them that gives us a reason to kill them i think it's very dangerous and we use that this subjective. subjective way in which we decide whether so much to live or die as i said it's very dangerous and it really opens the door to killing all types of people with with the loss types of disabilities now you mention this case bringing back of course memories of your sister your family struggle over her fate what happens personally you have experience of this when a family is split on such an emotional issue one part of the family wants to let the person go the other the other part wants to keep that person alive and well that this is
1:12 am
a little live human being with value and dignity and. the fact that the how do you deal with that issue as a as a family how do you deal with with 2 sides being on such opposite parts of the equation when it comes to someone you love well we lost tara which was and visit a parent's love terri levinson the way he is it's interesting to look at the cases where the opposite has happened where there's a woman in texas who have been declared brain dead but was being kept alive actually by a hospital against her family's wishes she was eventually then allowed soon to pass away should hospitals be the arbiter here and should they be able to override a family's wishes either way. well brain death is a completely different topic we're again we're if you look at good situation we're just in terms of making that critical decision is what i mean is such a critical decision of who should be in charge of it and that's that's part of the debate well. it depends on on an individual situation mean you can't just you just
1:13 am
can't make a broad statement on every situation of a person's medical condition that they do a lot. on the decision that you would make on on treatment options but i think if families are reasonable decisions on care they should be afforded that care what we're not quite right here we're not saying that people should be kept alive at all costs but if people if families make unreasonable requests to treat their loved ones they should be afforded that. all right bobbish and they will have to leave it there thank you so much president of the terri schiavo life and hope network thanks for time. britain's prime minister has offered a major concession in her latest attempt to get parliament to agree to her breakfast withdrawal deal 20 some may said that she will allow lawmakers to vote on whether to hold a 2nd national referendum on the even the e.u. this comes 2 months after britain's scheduled departure from the bloc i've also
1:14 am
listened carefully to those who've been arguing for a 2nd referendum i've made my own view on this clear on many times many times i do not believe this is a route that we should take because i think we should be implementing the result of the 1st referendum not asking the british people to vote in a 2nd one but i recognise the genuine and sincere strength of feeling across the house on this important issue the government will therefore include in the withdrawal agreements bill at introduction a requirement to vote on whether to hold a 2nd referendum and this must take place before the withdrawal agreement can be ratified. well joining me now is quentin peel he's in london he's a journalist and an associate fellow with the europe program at the think tank chatham house now 1st of all how is teresa mayes offered to let them vote on whether to have a 2nd referendum how has that been received. like
1:15 am
a squid ok to think this. is really breaks it will go this week it's a terrible idea to have the referendum but those who wrote the referendum say it's . very idea you don't think the agreement. because what's the reason it is saying is this agreement then i won't give you the option of maybe you will maybe you won't let me through a friend of so nobody is pleased. today may also offered some guarantees on workers' rights some environmental protections and she addressed other contentious issue of course the the irish border a backstop that would guarantee that the border in ireland would remain open with no checks on goods no checks on people crossing it in the event of
1:16 am
a no deal let's take a listen now to exactly what prime minister theresa may had to say so as part of the exit deal we will place the government under a legal obligation to see to conclude alternative arrangements lie december 2020 so that we can avoid any need for the backstop coming into force. i've also listened to unionist concerns about the backstop so the new bricks that deal goes further to address things it will commit to that the backstop come into force the government will ensure that great britain will stand lined with northern ireland so trying to address further concerns there is that enough to win over skeptical parliamentarians. if it doesn't sound like it because the democratic unionist from northern ireland have come out tonight and said it really doesn't sound like she's offering anything that we didn't know we're ready she's really trying to do is say i promise i will 1st myself and my government took from
1:17 am
me and turner sort of raised the policing the border without having a border by which they need you know cameras digital equipment and so on that's simply not enough for all the democratic unionists on the other hand she's also saying no even a little bit to have to follow different rules to the rest of the united kingdom which means norbit another didn't effect in this that start staring in the singular and that. alone gets it was in the terms of party so everybody's got to reason they had to wade into this last effort to get the agreement through parliament everybody is saying it's not good enough so she really seems to be caught in a terrible place so seemingly nobody happy what does this mean if this new deal does not get passed what's next for the u.k. and for prankster. well it's mixed is the reason why it is going to resume
1:18 am
and that's part of her problem because the fact that she's already promised to reside what's the deal is through if the deal is rejected again means that the labor party is really not prepared to trust any promises she makes so i think the danger is we're going to go into maybe 2 months over wrangling with the conservative. is going to be the new leader. and the chances it will change very little will probably get below probiotics it lead to somebody like boris johnson and he won't have the majority in parliament just as 2 reasons really it's not the majority in parliament the conservative party is in a terrible list they look like in the european elections that are going to be held on thursday it looks like they won't even get 10 percent of the votes and that's
1:19 am
for a party that 2 years ago won 1st it was sent in a general election certainly a big mess there quite and peel of the think tank chatham house in london thank you very much. to the khan film festival now and a look at some of the movies hoping to win the top prize that's been 25 years believe it or not since u.s. filmmaker quentin tarantino took home the coveted palme d'or for his classic pulp fiction and he's back with a new offering once upon a time in hollywood and mike seemingly every one of his films this one is creating quite a bus. for. 25 years after quentin tarantino's cult made the pulp fiction and won a prom double hollywood's wild child is back in cannes helping to claim the trophy once again townsend his latest styles hollywood heavyweight leonardo di caprio and it at festival organizers on tenterhooks. because it was still being edited in
1:20 am
april but the film is now ready to compete to my right is the last series lead and j.k. gillen self. and to my left is rick start double cliff who. once upon a time in hollywood is a movie about making movies as a reporter to do a lot of dangerous. cliff years meant. is that how you describe you just set in 1969 the picture follows an actor and a stunt double in their quest to achieve fame in hollywood we get into a fight i accidently. i go to jail. everybody accidentally kills anybody in fight they go to jail it's called manslaughter. the trail is suggests it's a departure from the extremely bonded static of classics such as kill bill all reservoir dogs but woody and such may still get their fix of splatter.
1:21 am
the movie is set in the era of the manson family the serial killers who spread fear and terror in california are let's head back to the movies now our very own movie buff scott roxboro is one of the luckiest guys tonight he was just at that premier of quentin tarantino's film in con scotland the the question that's on my mind and probably everyone else's is how was it. yeah for me great i really really love the film been sworn to a noice no spoilers review here sol try to talk about it without actually giving away any plot points what i can reveal is it stars leonardo di caprio who plays a sort of fading actor with the amazing name of ricky dalton who is a fading t.v. actor brad pitt plays his stunt double and longtime friend and. stars as
1:22 am
a version of the real life actress sharon tate the film takes place in the 1960 in 1969 so sort of the period the the end of the golden era of hollywood where hollywood transitioned from sort of a style chick period a romantic period into new hallie where woodward became much more which darker the films can darker and much more violent and sort of gave birth to independent cinema which in turn gave birth to directors like you know so very interesting period of time and of course this all takes place against the backdrop of the manson murders sharon tate the real sharon tate of course brutally murdered by the by the manson family what's interesting about this film i think is one it's not nearly as violent as one would expect from a parent you know movie though there are a couple of scenes which will satisfy his bloodiest fans but for me it's almost a love letter to hollywood almost romantic. look at the period that preceded his in hollywood i thought it was a tremendous film and i'm very interested to see how it's received and i'm curious
1:23 am
too i mean we always associate blood with terence you know so interesting here there won't be as bloody as we might expect now does he have a chance of winning a nother or he got 125 years ago with pulp fiction. yet 25 years ago to the day pulp fiction screen here in cannes won the palme d'or launched here in tinos career be interesting to see this year's very very strong year in cannes we got a lot of amazing films from great great directors terrence malick film is amazing that's here ken loach's new movie also very very good pedro almodovar 3 legendary directors with 3 really really strong movies i think people have a tough time competing against them and some of the young younger up and coming filmmakers that have been showing here very very strong running but 25 years ago a really changed cinema and can have a lot to do with it he owes a lot to cannes i think canales a lot to him it was a great way to start his career 25 years ago with pulp fiction here will be an amazing way to chronic giving him
1:24 am
a 2nd palme d'or for once upon a time in hollywood i'm really crossing my fingers for quickly scott do you have a favorite film so far the best one. well this one is pretty good but i'd have to go with ken loach's film sorely missed you an amazing look at the breakdown of social order in britain a look at 0 hours britain incredible busy critique of modern day modern day u.k. ken loach's an amazing director i'm amazed that he keeps getting better with each film that's my pick for the palme d'or i think he's got a really good chance of winning his 3rd palme d'or with this movie right scott roxboro there in conference thank you very much. today the world of motor sport lost and i caught the death was announced of former formula one driver niki lauda he was 70 years old his family says he passed away in the sleep at a hospital in zurich how does health have been affected by a horrific crash of the 1976 german grand prix is being remembered as one of the
1:25 am
best and most charismatic drivers in formula one history. this was the race that changed nicky lauder's life the austrian was pulled from the burning wreckage by fellow driver later a priest read the then reigning world champion his last rites despite his horrific burns and lung damage here stunningly return to race just 6 weeks later he would go on to claim 2 more world titles and a glittering career his remarkable comeback and rivalry with british driver james hunt inspired the hollywood movie rush overcoming adversity remained a mantra of louder throughout his life. but i want to say one thing i've seen people here winning and losing so that led to a dedicated this award to the losers because for my own experience winning is one thing or god of losing always learn more louder is the only man to have won championships for both ferrari and mclaren and
1:26 am
ranks as one of the greatest racing drivers of all time in 1905 loud aswat competitive racing for the world of aviation founding airlines allow the air and nicky. he never really left formula one though serving as a stakeholder and non-executive chairman with the mercedes team lauder never overcame the damage caused by the fire which consumed his car 40 years before in 2018 he underwent a lung transplant in vienna. the 3 time world champion will be remembered bud's for his talent behind the wheel and his extraordinary courage to return to the sport he loved. that's it for the day but as always the conversation continues online you'll find us on twitter either at d w news or you can follow me at com assman and don't forget to use a hash tag the day thanks for watching and for making us a part of your debt.
