Welcome to Death Salon LA // Summary of Morning Session
We started the day off with coffee, bananas, and muffins (the latter were provided by Ellatini, a cupcake company by Daniella Marcantoni, a licensed embalmer).
The morning session featured a presentation from Annetta Black, Senior Editor of Atlas Obscura and Nancy Caciola, Medieval History professor at UC San Diego. There was a screening of SOUL, a short film by filmmaker Larin Sullivan that premiered on ABC1 Australia. The film delved into the rituals of dressing the dead with artist and fashion designer Pia Interlandi as she created her first custom “Garment For the Grave.”
