The Columbarium


Do you have to be alive to be considered part of a neighborhood? This short black and white film shot on Super 16mm explores the concept of death through the eyes of Emmitt Watson, the long-time caretaker of close to 80,000 cremated remains at the Neptune Society Columbarium of San Francisco, and how we can still be a part of a community even after we go.
