This is a 1978 83-minute documentary about success and failure in the animal-cemetery business.
When financial hardship forces California's Foothill Pet Cemetery to close its pearly gates,
its dearly departed loved ones are relocated to the nearby Bubbling Well Pet Memorial Park.
During this tense transition, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris meets a collection of eccentric cemetery operators
and anguished animal lovers and elicits a meditation on love and lonliness that is strange yet appallingly funny.

I've never seen a film like this - it's a documentary, and you couldn't write a story as strange and compelling as this one about a pet cemetery that goes broke and the animals are relocated.

Very amateurish but interesting. You don't see much out there on this type of subject matter, so some information is better than none. I definitely learned a thing or two here.
