An Undertaking

Have you ever wondered what life must be like as an undertaker?  Graduate filmmaker Ed Emsley did and decided to make a short documentary on the subject. The result is not, as you might think, at all morbid.

The documentary follows James Showers and married couple, the Callenders, who are independent undertakers. They have chosen funeral directing and it has become their vocation. This documentary looks into how they deal with death on a daily basis and explores their thoughts on their own mortality.
