35mm Presentation - A diverse group of people arrive at a drafty institution where they are offered condolences on their recent deaths and told they each must select a treasured memory which will be recreated on film, and recollected for eternity. Shot in semi-documentary style, without special effects, After Life is possible the most convincing film ever made on the subject of the hereafter, as well as a fascinating commentary on the link between movies and memory.
