Cinema Eye Honors Nominee ‘Homegoings’ Is Streaming Free on POV

by |

Christine Turner’s Homegoings, POV’s 2013 season premiere broadcast, is now a Cinema Eye Honors nominee, and we’re happy to be able to share this film for free streaming on POV’s website and the PBS video apps.

Through the eyes of funeral director Isaiah Owens, the beauty and grace of African-American funerals are brought to life. Filmed at Owens Funeral Home in New York City’s historic Harlem neighborhood, Homegoings takes an up-close look at the rarely seen world of undertaking in the black community, where funeral rites draw on a rich palette of tradition, history and celebration. Combining cinéma vérité with intimate interviews and archival photographs, the film paints a portrait of the dearly departed, their grieving families and a man who sends loved ones “home.”

Watch Homegoing from November 8, 2013 through December 7, 2013, find out more about the film, and join the discussion at http://www.pbs.org/pov/homegoings/.
