An 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’.
Several people have died during the making of this documentary.
In Brighton, UK, a small group of women have been changing the way people look after their dead. Supporting them during the ritual of care after death, and empowering them to create personal ceremonies reflecting the life that the deceased lived.
This relatively unknown work is part of an emerging movement that is changing the way death is approached in contemporary Britain.
There will be a Q&A with director Rehana Rose following the film.
“This is an unbelievably timely and important film. It is beautifully crafted, so comforting as well as moving and gives the wisdom forth so simply and compellingly. Everyone should see this.”Dame Emma Thompson
