DC Premieres: Dying Green, plus a discussion with filmmaker Ellen Tripler and the film's star Dr. Billy Campbell. Also showing: Delicious Peace Grows in a Ugandan Coffee Bean~~Dying Green: Living green is something many of us strive for in today's world, but did you know that you can die green as well? Set in the foothills of the Appalachians, Dying Green explores one man's vision of using green burials to conserve land. Dr. Billy Campbell, the town's only physician, has 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.
