“A good funeral gets the dead where they need to go and the living where they need to be” —Thomas Lynch

FRONTLINE enters the world of Thomas Lynch, a poet and undertaker whose family has cared for the dead—and the living—in a small Michigan town for three generations. For the first time, Lynch and his family allowed cameras inside Lynch & Sons giving behind-the-scenes access—from funeral arrangements to the embalming room—to the Lynches’ world. Through the intimate stories of families coming to terms with grief, mortality, and a funeral’s rituals, The Undertaking illuminates the heartbreak and beauty inherent in the journey taken between life and death.

This film will be screened at the Lubbock campus only, but is available for checkout by faculty, staff, and students at the other TTUHSC campuses.

Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
