Southern Culture Movie Series Begins Thurs, May 12
Our friends at the UNC Writing Center are preparing to host another season of their popular Southern Culture Movie Series. This summer, the series will focus on documentary films created in and about North Carolina. The series begins with A Will for the Woods, a 2014 film about a man’s dying wish for a “green burial.”
As the film’s website describes it: “What if our last act could be a gift to the planet? Determined that his final resting place will benefit the earth, musician, psychiatrist, and folk dancer Clark Wang prepares for his own green burial while battling lymphoma. The spirited Clark and his partner Jane, boldly facing his mortality, embrace the planning of a spiritually meaningful funeral and join with a compassionate local cemetarian to use green burial to save a North Carolina woods from being clear-cut.”
This screening, which is free and open to the public, will be held in 116 Murphey Hall at 6:30 pm.
