Winner of the Best Documentary award at the British Independent Film Awards last year and a double nominee at the Berlin Film Festival, Almost Heaven follows quirky, innocent Ying Ling, an ambitious 17 year-old girl far from home, struggling to overcome her sense of displacement, alienation and fears of death as she trains to become a mortician in one of China’s largest funeral homes. A modest but powerful film on the major questions of life, death, work and adolescence, this is an intimate, tender and life-affirming portrait of a young woman on the cusp of adulthood.
