About the Movie

What if our last act could be a gift to the planet? Musician and psychiatrist 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 typical funeral practices that stress the ecosystem. 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It's possible to admire the four directors' unflinching depiction of the dying process, but the film is mostly unilluminating and grim - not least because almost all of the deaths discussed are untimely. – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times, Aug 14, 2014

Fresh: While the film also captures many private, sometimes heartbreaking scenes, it takes a lot of time to make its simple point. – Daphne Howland, Village Voice, Aug 12, 2014
