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’.

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’.
For nearly twenty years, a small team of women in Brighton have been changing the way people look after their dead. Supporting them to participate during the ritual of care after death and empowering all regardless of limited finances. Cara is passionate and believes in power to the people, challenging many of the accepted, traditional and often secretive ways of corporate funeral directors.
This relatively unknown work is part of an emerging movement confronting the way death is approached in modern Britain.
With extraordinary access, we follow three groups of people from the point of death of their loved one through to the ceremony.

UK, 2018, 75 min., Dir. Rehana Rose
