Abstract:

Set against the stunning backdrop of the industrial seaside town of Port Kembla, a feisty and resilient community group have determined to take back the responsibility that most of us leave to someone else - to care for their own dead. Scattered throughout are stories that cut to the core revealing why this small band have decided to take on a practice that for most is taboo. As their plans for community-based funerals gather momentum one of their own is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. The films offers an alternative model of end of life care challenging current medial and commercial establishments. TENDER is at once a heartbreakingly beautiful and beautifully funny glimpse of an extraordinary community taking on one of the most essential challenges of human life ... its end. Possibly the cheekiest and most life-affirming documentary on the concept of death and dying since Errol Morris' 'Gates of Heaven' - VarietyA film about dying that is all about living. Tender, and funny, and deeply moving. - Andrew Denton, Australian television producer.
