Acclaimed director Heddy Honigmann takes us on a visit of the renowned Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris, the final resting place for legendary artists from around the world including Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, Frederic Chopin, Marcel Proust and Maria Callas among others.
FOREVER introduces us to Parisians and tourists who make pilgrimages to these graves, whether to pay their respects, leave flowers or personal messages, or to tend to the upkeep of the tombstones. They share fascinating anecdotes about the deceased, and relate personal stories about the significance of the artists work in their lives. The cemetery is not only as a resting place for the dead but also a source of peace and inspiration for the living.
