Each year, around 520.000 persons die in France. 80% of these funerals are religiously celebrated whereas only 18% of people are practicing.
For sociologists and anthropologists our perception of death has deeply and socially evolved.
Anticipation in funeral organizations reserves more and more surprises. The widest possibilities to use the body or the ashes destroy traditional burial thoughts well anchored in our Christian societies.
To answer wonderings, hopes, desires or wills, a real business has raised: from sending ashes to the moon, to body freezing waiting for a scientifically possible rebirth, the offer is as delirious as various.
One thing is sure: progress of science permit to postpone the deadline, and also to imagine a new future for bodies than dusts or ashes.
