About The Film

Dying Green

Directed by Ellen Tripler

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. Winner of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ 39th Annual Student Academy Awards.
