What is our society’s relationship to death? Many are disconnected from its reality and afraid to even think of it or discuss it.
How did we get here, and are there different ways to connect to this part of life that we all must face for ourselves and our loved ones? How do we reclaim death from the industries and processes that have distanced us from it?
This series explores our evolving attitudes towards death, including the growing trend towards openness and honesty about end-of-life care. It aims to break taboos and present cultural perspectives to expand our understanding of one of life’s natural and most profound experiences.
This series is a collaboration between Houston Public Media, PBS Digital Studios, and Electric Pearl Productions.
