Movie Night on Monday, December 17, 2012 7PM

A Family Undertaking, the award-winning PBS documentary on home funerals, will be screened.

Before the Civil War, preparing the dead for burial and funeral rites generally fell to friends and family members of the deceased. The 20th century saw the rise of the professional undertaker, a trend that changed American attitudes toward death and distanced grievers from their loved ones. This eye-opening film uncovers a growing movement advocating a return to a more traditional, personal approach to honoring the dead.

December 17, 2012  7PM at the home of Julie Tinberg, 6801 W. 83rd Street Terrace, Bloomington, Mn. 55438, 612-245-3137.
