The Old Operating Theatre Museum
9A St Thomas Street, SE1 9RY London, United Kingdom
A documentary which still remains in a category by itself; Gates of Heaven focuses on an assortment of people involved in the pet cemetery business and the grieving owners who simply want to give the animals they love a proper send-off.
For a film supposedly about dead pets, this is a moving reflection of human nature which combines comedy, irony and pathos. The characterful subjects are allowed to speak for themselves, musing on the need for companionship, what it means to be alive and why we work so hard to be remembered in death.
This event will be preceded by an introduction by Gareth Miles.
Doors will open at 6:30 PM.
*Access: The Museum is only accessible through a 52-step spiral staircase.
