Dead Good + Q&A

Still from Dead Good, Rehana Rose, 2019

This special event is presented in association with St Wilfrid’s Hospice

With extraordinary access, first-time filmmaker Rehana Rose explores alternative funeral practices in Brighton. Her documentary follows three groups of people planning a funeral, working with funeral directors 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 a panel discussion with filmmaker Rehana Rose and St Wilfrid’s Hospice Family Support Coordinator, Ella Williams
