Eight episodes on possibly the most elementary subject of humanity: death – or what comes after. What happens to our remains after we are gone? Rest in Peace observes the different, sometimes accidentally funny post mortem routines – from cremations in Nepal to cryonics in Arizona to the celebrations of “Día de los Muertos” in Mexico. Philosophical questions about transience and finality meet calculated economic practices and their ecological consequences.
