Grave Games


Some may consider the gravedigger’s craft macabre, depressing, and just plain unappealing, but the Hungarian Undertakers’ Association is trying to improve this image with a national contest to dig the neatest grave in the shortest period of time. The bizarre competition aims to attract new recruits by demonstrating that this underrated profession is actually a rewarding occupation. RTD goes to Hungary to support the country’s best diggers and get an insiders’ look into their craft. What’s it like to encounter death on a daily basis? How do they keep up their spirits? How do they picture their own funerals? Hungarian gravediggers share their take on these questions and more, in Grave Games.
