The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning on SBS Viceland – Narrated by Amy Poehler, 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.
The Death Cleaners help Suzi, a sassy 75-year-old woman surrounded by phallic souvenirs from her travels, and a lifetime of photos from her years as a singing waitress, let go of the past and remind her that she’s not dead yet.
The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning on SBS Viceland and SBS on Demand – New Series Premiere – Sunday, 7 January at 10.25pm (8 parts)
