This award-winning film follows the efforts of terminal cancer patient Clark Wang to arrange a natural burial consistent with his values.
The film’s producers wrote:
"What if our last act could be a gift to the planet – a force for regeneration? Determined that his final resting place will benefit the earth, musician, folk dancer, and psychiatrist Clark Wang prepares for his own green burial."
"★★★★" "A beautiful rumination ... Advocating without preachiness and emotional without exploitation, this film is a lovely piece of work." Dan Schindel, Nonfics
"Far more impactful emotionally than just an issue documentary…something far more emotionally engrossing and ultimately intellectually rewarding...A gorgeous, haunting, and lushly crafted meditation on one man’s coming to terms with death"
