    Life After Death: An anthropologists’ cine-dialectic

    Is there any life after death? And what influence does this idea have on the living? Two anthropologists-cum-filmmakers, Ton Otto and Christian Suhr pursue these questions in two different places: Baluan Island in Papua New Guinea and Maastricht in the Netherlands. Ton interrogates his relatives (adopted and biological) in both places and Christian and Ton interrogate each other and representatives from different churches as part of this cinematic dialectical quest for answers about one of the great mysteries in our lives.

    The seminar is a presentation of work in progress in which anthropologist Ton Otto and filmmaker/editor Gary Kildea show and discuss film clips from the project.
