Toronto Public Library – Eglinton Square Branch
1 Eglinton Square #126, Toronto, Ontario, M1L 2K1
As part of THE NFB IN LIBRARIES, the Eglinton Square branch of the Toronto Public Library is offering a free screening of the following documentary :
Undertaker for Life! (Georges Hannan | 2022 | 52 min)
Despite the somewhat frightening name of their occupation, undertakers are actually charming philosophers and keen observers of life. We only see their sombre side, but away from the funeral rites and on camera, they turn out to be amazingly insightful. Their love of life and the living, their dark humour and comforting wisdom are the best remedies against existential despair.
Special guest: the screening will be followed by a talk from Matt Pierce, Community Undertaker of Daajing Giids.
