2012 Asian Film Festival of Dallas - Death of a Cemetery
July 17, 2012
3699 McKinney Avenue , Suite 100 , Dallas, TX
$7 - $10
The dead are not the only residents at the prominent Manila North Cemetery; caretakers and their families, along with numerous vendors and craftsmen, call the cemetery their home, living in multi-level mausoleums and beside grave sites. Despite the grim surroundings, these people have created a functional community as strong as any other, though the impacts of city officials’ eviction efforts, interlopers and health issues threaten to dislodge the living from the place alongside the dead.
Part of the 2012 Documentary Feature Competition, the AFFD is proud to present the World Premiere of DEATH OF A CEMETERY, with filmmakers Jeanie Duque Dizon and Phil Britton in attendance.
