The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning
Monday, 1 January 2024 on SBS On Demand (all eight episodes available)
Margareta Magnusson’s bestselling book comes to life in a transformation series where people are given the chance to organise their home, life, and relationships before it’s too late. Plucked right out of Sweden, an organiser, a designer, and a psychologist – also known as the Death Cleaners – have come to America to help eight heroes face their mortality, speak honestly about death, and confront all that “crap” that has been collecting dust for years.
Each story builds towards a physical transformation of the home, as well as an emotional journey that will leave you smiling. Narrated by Amy Poehler, this is a show that challenges us to deal with our stuff… so that those we leave behind aren’t faced with the overwhelming task of sorting through it. The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning normalises one of our worst fears, death, by reminding us of all the ways we’ve been alive.
The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning will be available on SBS On Demand, and air weekly from Sunday the 7th of January at 10.30pm on SBS Viceland.
