Black Lives Matter Documentary Film Series: Homegoings
Through the eyes of funeral director Isaiah Owens, the beauty and grace of African-American funerals are brought to life. Filmed at Owens Funeral Home in New York City’s historic Harlem neighborhood, Homegoings takes an up-close look at the rarely seen world of undertaking in the black community, where funeral rites draw on a rich palette of tradition, history and celebration. Combining cinéma vérité with intimate interviews and archival photographs, director Christine Turner’s Homegoings paints a portrait of the dearly departed, their grieving families and a man who sends loved ones “home.” 2013. 51 minutes.
