The Return of Women Undertakers
Marc Wolfensberger
2019 - 52 min - Vidéo Full HD - Couleur - Suisse

For millennia, women have cared for the deceased: as deathbed vigils, as morticians, as guardians of funeral rituals. They were present at birth; they were logically present upon death. And then everything changed since we no longer die at home: the men took over. Undertaker has become a "profession" as such, with its own business model. But today a growing number of women are making their comeback... For the good of the deceased?
