DYING GREEN (USA, 2011, 26 min.)
Hosted and moderated by Chris Palmer, Director, Center for Environmental Filmmaking, American University.
Washington, D.C. Premiere Set in the foothills of the Appalachians, this film explores one man’s vision of using green burials to conserve land. Dr. Billy Campbell, the town’s only physician, and his efforts have radically changed our understanding of burials in the United States. Dr. Campbell’s dream is to conserve one million acres of land. Dying Green focuses on the revolutionary idea of using our own death to fund land conservation and create wildlife preserves. Directed and produced by Ellen Tripler. Best Student Documentary and Best Educational Content (a Merit Award), 2011 Montana CINE International Film Festival.
Discussion with filmmaker Ellen Tripler and Dr. Billy Campbell.
