This May, catch City Screen Picture House‘s screening of a documentary that offers intimate portrait of those dealing with their dead, supported during the ritual of care after death by a team of women who are ‘giving death back to the people’.
With the industrialisation, corporatisation and speed of dealing with the dead in the UK, a growing number of people are worried by this ‘conveyor belt of death’. Some people are taking back ownership of this ceremonial rite.
Dead Good is sensitive and life-affirming. It encourages families and friends to be involved in the process that lies between passing away and the funeral.
“Beautifully crafted, so comforting as well as moving and gives the wisdom forth so simply and compellingly. Everyone should see this.” Dame Emma Thompson.
