Souls of Utrecht online for free!

The documentary Souls of Utrecht (only in Dutch) offers an exclusive behind-the scenes, a chance to step out of the hectic life and and reflect upon death.



The municipal cemeteries in Utrecht are oases of rest where the dead are being laid to rest in the Utrecht soil or in special vaults. They are also places to walk around, to ponder about life and death and to unwind among the beautiful trees that act as green lungs for the city.

Tanja Medema, team leader of the Utrecht Cemeteries, is confronted with fewer visitors and more empty places in the cemeteries due to the popularity of cremation and is searching for ways to turn things around.

The documentary was broadcast by RTV Utrecht in three parts and can now also be seen via Youtube.
