Death at First Sight – Funeral Directors Recall Their First Encounter With The Dead
I was emailed a link this weekend to an Australian film website that details the documentary “Body Work”. Although the documentary was produced in 1988 I still found the clips below to be very interesting.
The website explains the documentary as follows:
The documentary consists of a series of interviews with professionals working in the bereavement industry: pathologists, coroners, nurses, funeral directors, police, gravediggers and cremation workers. They each describe their job and their emotional response to their work.
By describing their role in detail, the bereavement industry workers conjure up images that graphically convey the unpleasant job of occasionally dealing with corpses in advanced decay. The usual processes after death are also explained.
Below is a link where you can watch 3 clips from the documentary:
