Post-screening discussion featuring Pete McQuillin and John Davis, the manager and assistant manager of Penn Forest Natural Burial Park

Fri., June 16, from 7 – 9 p.m., join us for a screening of A Will for the Woods. This film asks the question, "What if our last act could be a gift to the planet — a force for regeneration?" Musician, folk dancer and psychiatrist Clark Wang prepares for his own green burial, determined that his final resting place will benefit the earth. A Will for the Woods is an immersive, life-affirming depiction of people coming to terms with mortality by embracing their connection to timeless natural cycles.   

Post-film discussion will be led by Pete McQuillin and John Davis, the manager and assistant manager of Penn Forest Natural Burial Park. Pennsylvania's first exclusively green burial ground, Penn Forest Natural Burial Park is committed to creating a beautiful burial park where nature is at the forefront. A third of the land is set aside as a nature preserve habitat for native wildlife and plants.
