Exclusive: See the Lengths People Will Go to Preserve Their Dead Pet's Memory in 'Furever' Trailer

12 April 2013 9:21 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Amy Finkel's post-mortem pet preservation documentary was first put Kickstarter two years ago, it managed to more than double its $5,000 donation goal and inspire quite a bit of interest in its covering of how we handle animal deaths in varying capacities. Now with the film complete and screenings at Toronto documentary film festival Hot Docs scheduled, Finkel's film has released a new trailer for the film (exclusive to Indiewire), reveling in the insane lengths we will go to to preserve a memory. Citing our increasing emotional devotion to the animals in our lives, "Furever" follows various individuals attempt to grapple with the deaths of their lifelong pets, ranging from the tragic grieving process, to more "creative" methods, whether it be retaining their image in plaques, mummifying their remains, or resorting to taxidermy, with some treating it as if they never left. The film is now on the festival »
