DEALING WITH DEATH
DOOD IN DE BIJLMER

Director: PAUL SIN NAM RIGTER
NETHERLANDS
2020, 73'

In the Bijlmer, in Amsterdam-Zuidoost, every culture has its own rituals around death. Funeral manager Anita has the task of attracting all those cultures to her soon to be built multicultural funeral home in the middle of the Bijlmer. Anita sets out on a tour to get to know this unfamiliar world. But the deeper she penetrates, the more she realises how little she knows about the Bijlmer’s different cultures.

Paul Sin Nam Rigter studied communication science, he made his debut as an actor. He directed the short films «Lux» and «Sweet Tomato», the documentary «Playing for the Past» and «The Nose – In search of Blamage» and he wrote and directed the thee-part documentary series «Heroes of the Maxima».
