Birth, Marriage, and DeathStreaming Video - 2011
From birth to death, in every country on the globe, for tens of thousands of years, the rhythm of human life has been accentuated by the practice of religious ritual. In this program adherents of three different faiths share their understanding of some common rites of passage: a rabbi explains the elements of a Jewish wedding, including some that date back to the book of Genesis; a minister discusses the role of Christian faith in making funerals more bearable; and a Hindu couple demonstrate the use of both astrology and the Internet to choose the right name for their daughter. Featuring footage of the ceremonies, the video provides an intimate look at the affirmation of spiritual beliefs.
