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.
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.
