While we tend to associate death with stillness, the short film Danse Macabre explores the ways in which a human body can move in the hours and days after death, giving its subject an unexpected grace.

Be warned, this is an especially grim short, set in the aftermath of a murder suicide, and it's most definitely not for everyone. It's also NSFW for nudity.

Danse Macabre was conceived by Robert Lepage and directed by Pedro Pires.
