Funeral Strippers in Taiwan

Funeral Strippers in Taiwan

A new documentary by Marc L Moskowitz, Dancing For The Dead: Funeral Strippers In Taiwan, documents the rather odd folk tradition in rural Taiwan to hire exotic dancers to perform at a funeral !  This is a 40 minute documentary that interviews strippers, academics and goverment officials

The associate professor at the Department of Anthropology of the University of South Carolina said he created the film to show the practice to U.S. audiences 'who generally have a very narrow idea of what culture is, what a proper funeral is and how to grieve'.  In that we agree.
