AFTER LIFE

Prisca Bouchet and Nick Mayow - New Zealand
2016 — Documentary — Danish subtitles — prisca.bouchet@gmail.com

Welcome to the funeral home. An enigmatic institution that we all try our hardest to forget until we suddenly need it badly. Here are the men and women whose days are spent among the dead: They perform the both delicate and matter-of-fact rituals of the body's preparation for its final journey. This is a document of a rarely seen world; a place rich in meaning and humanity, where the daily work deals with our deepest fear.
