What if our last act could be a gift to the planet? Determined that his final resting place will benefit the earth, musician, psychiatrist and folk dancer Clark Wang prepares for his own green burial while battling lymphoma. The spirited Clark and his partner Jane, boldly facing his mortality, embrace the planning of a spiritually meaningful funeral and join with a compassionate local cemetarian to use green burial to save a North Carolina woods from being clear-cut.
With poignancy and unexpected humour, A Will for the Woods portrays the last days of a multifaceted advocate – and one community’s role in the genesis of a revolutionary movement. As the film follows Clark’s dream of leaving a legacy in harmony with timeless cycles, environmentalism takes on a profound intimacy.
After the film join Good Green Death Project Instigators, Susan Koswan and Ellen Newman and other panellists to learn about their project, what green funeral and burial options are currently available in the region and get answers to all those questions you’ve been *dying* to ask.
