The Greater Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust invites you to join a conversation about sustainable end of life choices at our screening of the acclaimed documentary film 'A Will for the Woods'.

'A Will for the Woods' follows Clark Wang, a man dying of lymphoma, as he attempts to figure out the most environmentally friendly form of burial. This quest leads to an exploration of green technology, as well as a philosophical discussion around the idea of returning to the earth upon death.

This award-winning documentary has been shown at film festivals such as the San Francisco Film Festival and the New Orleans Film Festival.

Following the screening, a Q&A session will take place with the film’s producer Amy Browne.
