'The Tibetan book of the Dead' DVD (2009) narrated by Leonard Cohen is a quality DVD that shows how a Tibetan Buddhist community in a Himalayan village deals with death.
The DVD touched lightly on some beliefs from the Tibetan book of the Dead and also had a 20 minute bonus footage of a Buddhist group in a Nova Scotia fishing community.

There's another Tibetan Book of the Dead feature film video produced by a Japanese film crew, that is a combination of live footage of a man near death in a small village, then it shows preparations to cremate him, and the cremation, with narration going all the while, plus an animated segment that illustrates his travel through the bardo state, with narration from the Book of the Dead. The title of the film is simply: The Tibetan Book of the Dead. It's been out for years, now, and it's quite good.

I downloaded this DVD for the net some years ago. I dont remember much of it. I think i will buy it when i get the mony for it. Its about the bardos. There are more then one "category" of em. The bardo of life is like all of em "in one bardo". Its a good move.
thanks
