Information About “A Family Undertaking”

This one hour video documentary explores the complex psychological, cultural, legal and financial issues surrounding an important and growing new trend: the home funeral movement. A Family Undertaking profiles several families who have made the decision to forego the typical mortuary funeral and instead prepare their loved ones at home for burial or cremation. A short facilitated discussion will follow the movie.
