With extraordinary access, first-time film-maker Rehana Rose explores alternative funeral practices in Brighton. Her documentary follows three groups of people planning a funeral, working with funeral directors and pastors who challenge many of the accepted traditions of what is a multi-million pound industry. From being involved in preparing the body for burial, to building the coffin itself, this is an incredibly intimate process. Funeral directors speak candidly about the care they give and the ways in which they support their clients after bereavement. This relatively unknown work is part of an emerging ‘progressive death movement’ that is changing how we deal with ceremonial rites in modern Britain. 

Followed by Q&A with director Rehana Rose.
