Farewell Touch

France Benoit
2012 | 7 min
This short documentary shines a light on the work of undertakers in a moving portrait that celebrates human touch at the seam of the mortal divide. When Peter dies in Yellowknife with no family members to claim his remains, he ends up in Janice's careful hands, where he is cleaned, shaved and dressed for his final resting place.
