Humans love their pets SOOOO much. When the animals die, people want to memorialize them, anything from burying them in pet cemeteries to making jewelry from their cremains to freeze-drying them (“He’s not the same as he was, but it’s a hundred times better than not having him,” notes one such memorialist). More than just an absurdist gawkfest, this documentary boasts a real and gentle understanding of how much a pet can mean to someone. It looks at the lengths people will go to keep a special animal around forever, and the memorialization industry that’s willing to provide practically any service you can imagine. (GILLIAN ANDERSON)
