Join Dr. Karen Wyatt and her guests, filmmakers Amy Browne and Brian Wilson as they discuss their award-winning film, A Will for the Woods, the story of a man near the end of his life who prepares for his own green burial. This film has been named "One of the 9 documentaries you must see this year" by the TED blog and has won numerous awards at film festivals around the country. In this interview you will learn:
- what inspired 4 young filmmakers to spend 4 years filming this end-of-life journey
- what the movie teaches us about death and burial customs
- how this film can change the funeral industry
- how to plan your own green burial and create a "green will"
Co-director/Editor, Brian Wilson, graduated from Brown University with a degree in Comparative Literature and History, and works as an editor in New York. Passionate about the natural world and its protection and restoration, he is pleased to be exploring and raising awareness about green burial with A Will for the Woods. He became interested in developing deeper insight into death after his mother died in 2008, and has been grateful to find it through working on this project, which he hopes will offer similar comfort and understanding to many viewers.
