Poster of Ghana, Coffins to order

Director(s): Philippe Lespinasse • Producer(s): Grand Angle Productions • Coproducer(s): France Télévisions • Format(s): HD

The coffins made by the Ga Company represent the occupation of the deceased, his interests, his social status or whatever he meant to his loved ones. A greengrocer will depart in a tomato or an onion… A soccer player in a studded boot, a carpenter in a plane, a fisherman in a fish, a doting mother hen in a hen, and a cop in a cop. A fleeting and sumptuous funereal art, it all ends under the ground, but collectors are starting to get interested.
