Truly Haunting Trailer For Dutch Doc DEAD BODY WELCOME

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
When you deal with as much genre film as we do here at Twitch, you see a lot of death on screen. Or at least you pretend you do. Which is why, when you stumble across the real thing, it comes as a bit of an extra shock. You think you're familiar with it, after all, but you're not really. Which is what makes Kees Brienen's Dead Body Welcome so striking.

A film about the real-life journey filmmaker Kees Brienen undertook to see the phenomenon of the total eclipse. Upon arrival in India he finds out his best friend Ritchy has passed away. The trip suddenly becomes a search for a dead body, and trying to understand and accept what had happened to him. Kees finds his friend up in the mountains and does what he needs to do, and in the process discovers new perspectives on love, life and death.

Yes, that's Ritchy up above. And, yes, he's actually dead. The trailer for Brienen's film has arrived online and it's an elegaic, haunting bit of work. Take a look below.
