Necropolis is a film essay about the death of the city, shot entirely in cemeteries, graveyards and burial grounds in Belfast, Berlin and London.
The accompanying voiceover narrates a story about attitudes to death and the dead over many centuries. Throughout the film, the cemetery is a parallel to the city, with its own architecture and spatial plan, and its own social divisions. Through this concentration on the city of the dead, the film asks simple questions: after decades of dispossession and privatisation, what is the future of our city, the city of the living? Where, and how, will we live?
