Funeral (On the Art of Dying)

2016 / 97min / DCP


The last episode of Lehman’s ongoing “auto-cine-biographic” work Babel, through which Lehman has documented thirty years of his own life, Funeral finds the filmmaker-essayist getting ready for the end, his customary wry humor still very much intact as he attends to the business of trying a coffin on for size, preparing for the ceremony, and putting together a brilliant, blazing pyre of worldly possessions. Wistful and wise, the capstone to an awesome feat of ongoing cinematic self-analysis. EFP Member: Wallonie Bruxelles Images
