Funerals are the most common death rituals in the world, but there are other ceremonies that involve the dead, often with very different purposes. For the Aghori mystics of India, the corpse isn't something to be avoided, but rather embraced. This program examines the ways in which cultures both foreign and familiar confront the ultimate taboo. From the practice of exhuming the bones of ancestors in Taiwan to that of embalming the deceased in the United States, the video shows how different societies deal with death and what this reveals about their values.
