Synopsis: Co-directed by Amy Browne, Tony Hale, Jeremy Kaplan and Brian Wilson – A WILL FOR THE WOODS defers to a burgeoning movement that uses burial to conserve and restore natural areas, forgoing contemporary funeral practices that operate at the ecosystem’s expense. Musician, psychiatrist and folk dancer Clark Wang, while battling lymphoma, boldly faces his mortality and, supported by his partner Jane, enjoins a compassionate local cemeterian to use green burial instead of clear cutting the North Carolina woods.
