Documentary Film: A WILL FOR THE WOODS

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 man's passionate wish for a legacy of green burials inspires a profoundly affecting and optimistic portrait of people finding meaning in death. Musician, folk dancer, and psychiatrist Clark Wang battles lymphoma while facing a potentially imminent need for funeral plans. Determined that his last act will not harm the environment and may even help protect it, Clark has discovered the movement to further sustainable funerals that conserve natural areas.

Enabling Clark's wish is green burial pioneer Joe Sehee, who aims to realize this concept's vast potential by helping define its goals and standards and endeavoring to open the world's largest conservation burial ground. Moved by Clark's persistence and relying on Joe's guidance, local cemetarian Dyanne Matzkevich, though avowedly "not a greenie," establishes the first natural burial ground in North Carolina. Together she and Clark endeavor to protect the tract of forest adjacent to her conventional cemetery, developing a close bond.Winner of numerous awards!
