"Let's talk of graves, of worms, and epitaphs.” -Shakespeare

A cemetery is not merely a place to grieve--it is also a place to remember the great loves of our lives, and to contemplate how each of us arrived at this point in time. The thought-provoking films in this program come from all over the world and offer intimately individualized perspectives on death, dying and the process of memorialization. For some, the death of loved ones is a catalyst for national change; for others it is an opportunity to cling tightly to our past and to preserve memories in amber. These films resonate because they present global and universally relatable perspectives on loss, but they don’t try to argue that there is one appropriate way to wrestle with the end. Presented on the idyllic grounds of Green-Wood Cemetery."
