As the rising costs of “traditional funerals” place them out of reach for ordinary families, the bereaved are resurrecting a lost art—the home funeral. In the Parlor: The Final Goodbye is the passion project of Heidi Boucher, an independent filmmaker and home funeral advocate who works with families to create sacred spaces for saying goodbye.
