Although this sequence is not called for in the script, I wanted to create a sense of a traveling forward through the canal of death into the world of Purgatory. Fundamentally I kept asking myself the question, "What would cause my soul to go to Purgatory instead of heaven or hell?" This inspired me to pursue that question with the cast and director and we recorded the voice of each actor's character's most personal inner question as to how they arrived at Purgatory.
