‘SONG OF THE CICADA’ by first-cousins Aaron & Robert Weiss, is a person that is so interesting and so bizarre and whose story is so unfamiliar that it’s hard to believe it’s true. Dale Carter is such a person. On tour through the funeral home with Dale as our joyful guide you hear both stories of the macabre as remarkable tales.
Aaron Weiss: “In our society, we rarely hear the perspective of morticians and those closely associated with death. But this decade-spanning portrait of a career mortician also shows someone who finds refuge in his work from an unkind world and seeks catharsis ‘behind the formaldehyde curtain’.”

Aaron’s career is dedicated to telling a wide variety of stories through his work.
