Ring Auditorium

This detached, deadpan account of the behind-the-scenes operations at a small-town German crematorium goes beyond documentary. Never veering into the morose or maudlin, and with minimal dialogue, Heise presents instead a cool, resonant, sobering meditation on the passing of life.

In German with English subtitles.

Seating is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
