Through the eyes of Harlem funeral director Isaiah Owens, the beauty and grace of African-American funerals are brought to life.
“Homegoings” takes an up-close look at the rarely seen world of undertaking in the black community, drawing on a rich palette of tradition, history and celebration. The film paints a portrait of the departed, their grieving families and a man who sends loved ones “home.”
