A Will for the Woods, winner of the 2013 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival Audience Award, returns to Durham for a free Third Friday screening as part of the Full Frame Road Show presented by PNC. This multi-director feature documentary (Amy Browne, Jeremy Kaplan, Tony Hale, and Brian Wilson) follows musician, psychiatrist, and folk dancer Clark Wang as he prepares for his own “green burial,” a burgeoning movement that uses burial to conserve and restore natural areas, forgoing contemporary funeral practices that operate at the ecosystem’s expense.

Friday, September 19, 7:30 p.m.
Full Frame Theater, Power Plant building

320 Blackwell St., Durham, North Carolina

While battling lymphoma, Clark and his partner Jane have become passionate about green burial, compelled by both the environmental benefits and the idea that one can remain within the cycle of life, rather than being cut off from it. The spirited pair have inspired a compassionate local cemeterian, and together they aim to use green burial to save a North Carolina woods from being clear-cut—Clark’s dream of leaving a loving, permanent legacy.
