Book cinema tickets for Almost Heaven

The 17-year-old Ying LIng is far from home, training to be a mortician at one of China's largest funeral parlours. As she prepares for another final farewell, she also fears the spirits that lurk in the corridors of the crematorium. She shares these strange rituals of death with co-worker Jin Hau, and grows to understand what it means to be alive.  But soon she is left to face the harsh realities of the job and her life alone.

This screening, presented by Scottish Documentary Institute, will be followed by a Q&A with Carol Salter, who will also host a Masterclass at ECA on Fri 6 Oct from 2.00pm-5.00pm.
