Tom Jokinen now lives in Ottawa, but his darkly comic Curtains was conceived in Winnipeg where he took a job as an apprentice undertaker in 2006. He had serious questions about the secular funeral rites that are taking over the industry: is this really the way we want to say our final goodbyes? Curtains is about what he found, from the mundane to the macabre. Curtains lifts the veil on the funeral industry in the 21st century.
