synopsis
Narrated by a eulogist in training, the film chronicles a dying professional eulogist's search for a protégé to inherit the glorious burden of his profession. The semifictional film, which Lapp describes as a "documation," uses the imagined figure of the professional eulogist to explore the function of memory, place, and social nostalgia in our religious imaginations.

director
Sarah Jane Lapp makes drawings, paintings, and films and has exhibited internationally for the last two decades.
