Storyline

How do we say goodbye? Cultures around the world commemorate, connect with and celebrate their beloved dead through unique death ceremonies. SKY BURIAL provides a rare glimpse into one storied yet nearly extinct death ritual performed by a devoted Buddhist lama who faces the challenge of preserving old wisdom in a more global and modern world. A ceremony shrouded in mystery, this short film brings the audience into the inner reaches of a nomadic community in the steppes of Mongolia during one of their most profound and vulnerable moments, and reveals ancient, yet living, traditions that are vessels of some of humanity's most profound accumulated wisdom-about life, death, spirituality and the power and necessity of ritual in all our lives.
