ABOUT THE PROJECT

The Salt River Mortuary in Cape Town is one of the world’s busiest mortuaries. Built in 1957, it is long outdated and no longer sufficiently supports an ever-growing city. The film looks at the plans to build a new state-of-the-art forensic facility that hopes to solve the health risks currently faced by the mortuary staff, while also striving to provide adequate and timeous forensic answers to loved ones.
