We are pleased to announce that we will be screening several films from The Royal Anthropological Institute at SSSB 2018.
The Royal Anthropological Institute (RAI) distributes and hosts a large number of ethnographic films from around the globe. Death and death rituals are a recurring theme in the collection. The RAI Film Officer and curator of the RAI Film Festival and RAI film catalogue has provided a series of films which present different approaches to death and mortuary traditions in different geographical regions.
The film programme will consist of three films, with a collective running time of 67 minutes. The films include:
- We Don't Need a Grave
- Cultivating Death
The films will be run on a loop throughout the second day of the conference (Wednesday 21st March). More information will be provided in the conference booklet at the event.
