Event Details

FUREVER, part of the 2013 Northside DIY Competition, Presented by the MFA in Film at Vermont College of Fine Arts

Directed by: Amy Finkel

Narrated by: Illeana Douglas

80min/2013/USA/English

FUREVER is feature length documentary that explores the dimensions of grief people experience over the loss of a pet. It examines the sociological evolution of pets in the U.S. today, particularly their position in a family unit, and how this evolution is affecting those in the veterinary profession and death care industry. With interviews from grieving pet owners, veterinarians, psychologists, sociologists, religious scholars, neuroscientists, and the many professionals who preserve a pet's body for their devastated clientele, or repurpose a pet's cremains in unique ways (taxidermy, cloning, mummificatio, freeze-drying, AND MANY MORE), FUREVER confronts contemporary trends, perspectives, and relevant cultural assumptions regarding attachment, religion, ritual, grief, and death, and studies the bonds that form between humans and animals, both psychological and physiological.
