This television program discusses the social and cultural responses that people have created to process death and bereavement. The film discusses concepts of death and rituals in three different cultures: the Americans of the continental United States, the Bantu of Africa, and the Kiriwina of the Trobriand Islands. Dancers from Texas Southern University illustrate the three different cultures in modern interpretive dance. Credits: Schlessinger, Paul G. (director), Bergene, Arnold (editor), Meaney, John William (producer), Bullock, Henry Allen (narrator).
