Moldova | 2018 | In development
Liuba is a 73 years old professional mourner from a village in the north of Moldova that prepares for her biggest journey of her life – death. Being one of the few left that still carry the knowledge of death traditions, she guides us through the process with sincerity and humor. From dowry preparation, washing the dead, mourning, funeral ceremonies, we question our own relationship with death and belief, leaving us transformed.
