UNSTILL LIFE (Czech Republic, 2005-2007)

What distinguishes man from other living beings is his belief in immortality. As a consequence of this, many people find the idea attractive that there is more than just the here-and-now. They believe that life continues in one form or another after death - a view that is often articulated by religions. At the same time we repress our feelings of mortality, for instance by trying to erase signs of aging. Christel Boertjes did a series on these dual feelings that are inherent to mankind. Unstill Life is a work in progress.
