Rest in peace
Documentary | Andrea Morgenthaler | 2010
„Rest in Peace“ - this is what we wish for our dead
But what happens to our mortal bodies after death?
How do we deal with this? What do we know about the world of the dead?
How does a body change after death?
Rest in Peace is all about corpses. About decay and degeneration.
About death as an ecological problem, about the dead as human spare parts.
About the radical, ultimate end - and the question of whether any part of us remains.
episodes take us around the world and provide an insight - sometimes
disturbing and sometimes unwittingly amusing - into the everyday lives
of those people who spend so much of their time with dead bodies.
Death is the most fundamental issue facing mankind.
And our attitude towards it is both irrational and paradoxical.
