CORPUS airs on VisionTV October 26 at 10pm ET / 7pm PT
Connie was leading quite a death-less life until a government health insurance representative casually asked her what she planned to do with her body after she died. The wheels in Connie’s mind began to turn, and soon everything had a shade of death to it.
CORPUS chronicles her journey across North America as she visits many of the fascinating people, places and facilities involved in non-traditional afterlife services. Options include plastination, cryonics, mummification, glassblowing, diamonds, space travel, fine art photography and using your remains to grow coral reefs.
CORPUS was short-listed to participate at La Semaine de la Critique du Festival de Cannes, premiered at the Montréal World Film Festival.
