Project details

Ileana, a 69 years old woman from Bucovina died.
She is accompanied by her family,neighbours, friends and other people from the village on her last journey.
Funerals in Bucovina are rich in rituals and old traditions passed generation after generation, usually  by the women. This rituals make people feel apart making death bearable and somehow honest and simple, a natural process in life. Here death becomes also a social event where everyone is welcomed , bringing the community around the deceased and his/hers family creating  a sense of togetherness in front of death.

                                         

Ileana, 69 de ani din Bucovina a murit.

Alaturi de familie, prieteni, vecini si multi alti sateni Ileana merge pe ultimul drum.

Inmormantarile in Bucovina sunt bogate in traditii vechi si ritualuri transmise din generatie in generatie in special de catre femei. Aceste ritualuri ii ajuta pe oameni sa simta ca nu sunt singuri transformand  moarte in ceva mai usor de continut si de inteles, mai simplu, mai onest, un proces natural al vietii. Aici, moarte devine  eveniment social unde fiecare este primit, aducand comunitatea in jurul celui ce a murit si a familiei acestuia creand solidaritate in fata mortii.
