Storyline

FUREVER is a feature-length documentary that explores the dimensions of grief people experience over the loss of a pet. It examines the sociological evolution of pets in the U.S. today, particularly their position in a family unit, and how this evolution is affecting those in the veterinary profession and death care industry. With interviews of grieving pet owners, veterinarians, psychologists, sociologists, religious scholars, neuroscientists, and the many professionals who preserve a pet's body for their devastated clientele, or re-purpose a pet's cremains in unique ways (taxidermy, cloning, mummification, freeze-drying, and many more), FUREVER confronts contemporary trends, perspectives, and relevant cultural assumptions regarding attachment, religion, ritual, grief, and death, and studies the bonds that form between humans and animals, both psychological and physiological.

Furever, A Film by Amy Finkel
17 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Full disclosure, I worked on and appear in the film and have no financial interest in its success. Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine was proud to be a part of this production. This review is about the director and the film. Amy is a remarkable young filmmaker with extraordinary insight into the process for her years. Remember the name, she'll do much more great work in the future. Note here how she checks the ego and lets those on film tell the story without the audience having to hear her off-camera questions. This film delves into an unseen world of the human-animal bond... after death. Believe it or not, respect it or not, the entire realm is growing and the emotional attachment is becoming more mainstream. Next time you're in, ask your veterinarian if they were formally trained to deal with grief and most will say no followed by a quick wish that they had. Charlie Powell
