Cobargo Doco: A will for the woods Oct 21st



Sunday, October 21st will be the next monthly community documentary screening in the Old Cobargo Butter Factory at 3.30pm

A WILL FOR THE WOODS Directed by Amy Browne, Jeremy Kaplan, Tony Hale, and Brian Wilson


"A film about a life of purpose and a death with meaning" What if our last act could be a gift to the planet? Musician, psychiatrist, and folk dancer Clark Wang prepares for his own green burial in this immersive documentary. While battling lymphoma, Clark has discovered a burgeoning movement that uses burial to conserve and restore natural areas, forgoing contemporary funeral practices that operate at the ecosystem’s expense. Boldly facing his mortality, 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. Making the most of the time that he has, Clark finds joy in his music and dance, connection with his friends and family, and great comfort in the knowledge that his death, whenever it happens, will be a force for regeneration. The film follows Clark’s dream of leaving a loving, permanent legacy, and environmentalism takes on a deeply human intimacy. Documenting one community's role in the genesis of a revolutionary movement, A Will for the Woods draws the viewer into a life-affirming portrait of people embracing their connection to each other and to timeless natural cycles. ====================================================== Coffee and tea provided - Bring your own mug ;-) To cover the costs a $5 donation is much appreciated.
