'You're born and you will die' confidently declares an eighty year old woman trying on her future 'death dress.' Still widely practiced amongst the elderly population in rural Lithuania, the ancient custom of preparing your own burial clothes seems much less acceptable to the younger generation. Anything But Black explores this unique tradition through encounters with those who still maintain it. Proudly showing off the dresses as their sacred possession those who express their disapproval and also those to whom this practice is completely unheard of. The film proposes a rather unconventional attitude towards death - that of acceptance. This death is more tame, less sinister and, as the film often shows, even humorous.
