still from Forever by Heddy Honigmann
Forever docmentary by Heddy Honigmann

Heddy Honigmann's Forever (2006) creates a portrait of the Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris. The filmmaker has a tactful manner with visitors to the cemetery who pay their respects to the beloved, the famous, or the forgotten people buried there. A cemetery tour guide (top), a cartoonist fan of Marcel Proust (middle) and a woman mourning her long-lost husband (bottom) are three of many memorable encounters.
