‘Undertaker’ deals with the death related to a building, not that of a specific person. A very physical and absolute death nests within the walls of crematorium Hofheide. There’s no longer hope of escaping it, only the question whether anything follows after. You observe the undertaker carrying out the rituals that precede a ceremony. Every object he handles and every movement he makes, bare witness to the fact that it’s already over. Manually crushing the ashes, removing the metals, cleaning up the crumpled up tissues that the previous family left behind, setting up the candles for the last goodbye. Piece by piece actions that confirm a life has ended.
