A Will for the Woods: Film + Lunch

DC’s documentary film festival has changed from Silverdocs to AFI Docs, one of the implications of which is that documentaries can now be seen in DC as well as in Silver Spring. Check out the schedule for a plethora of great documentaries. I’m inviting Nature Lovers to view A Will for the Woods, followed by lunch in the museum’s Stars and Stripes café.

Film synopsis:
Psychiatrist, classical musician and folk dancer Clark Wang has been diagnosed with terminal lymphoma. Facing his own mortality, he opts for a "green" burial over what he believes are toxic, wasteful modern funeral arrangements engineered to preserve the body at the ecosystem's expense. In this touching story of a charismatic, ebullient advocate's final days, environmentalism takes on a deeply human intimacy as the film follows Clark's efforts to leave a loving, permanent legacy for family, friends and nature.

The film costs $13.  I suggest buying a ticket through the website ahead of time.

Nature Lovers is sponsored by Clean Currents.

    Film was very useful for a man of my age and inclinations. Couldn't find the nature group for lunch.

    Let's try to meet outside the entrance to the theater at 10:45. I'm not sure what to expect in terms of crowds, so I'll offer another meeting place, which is the retro ice cream truck in front of the museum - at 10:38 a.m. I am wearing a pink skirt, tan top. I emailed my cell # to participants.
