Fiancee De La Vie, La

52 minutes, 2002

A Malaysian proverb says that death is the bride of life, that both of them are united by a kind of promise. Life and death are inseparable and yet we live in a society where one removes the living dead, where we try constantly to retreat, to abolish the borders of death. This documentary gives a voice to children who have experienced the death of a loved one and chose to break the silence.
