Giving your all back to nature

Giving your all back to nature (By permission, "A Will for the Woods" / August 20, 2014)

For some, environmentalism is more than just a more earth-friendly way to live. It it even informs their leaving - how they want their remains treated in death.

A new film, which airs Thursday, Aug. 21 at the Creative Alliance, explores "green" burial, considered by proponents as a simple and natural alternative to contemporary burial or cremation practices.

In "A Will for the Woods," musician, psychiatrist, and folk dancer Clark Wang prepares for his own green burial while contending with lymphoma. With a little help, Wang and his partner aim to use his interment to save a tract of North Carolina woods.

To see a trailer, go here.  The film screens for just one night, at 7:30 p.m., at 3134 Eastern Ave.  Tickets are $12, $9 for alliance members.
