"Death Goes Green" Wins a Spot Amongst International Awardees

For the third year running, the students of the Winter quarter Documentary Production class won a position among the International Documentary Challenge 2010 finalists!

The film, "Death Goes Green," an intimate portrait of the pioneers of Oregon's green burial movement, will premiere at the prestigious Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada on May 2nd, where the film is up for additional commendations.

The students would like to thank the Art Institute for its support of the project; especially Janet McIntyre and the DFV Department, Kate Jundt and STAC, Ron Engeldinger and the Education Department, and Eztrella Armijo and the Equipment Cage.

They would also like to thank Doc Challenge "alumni" who contributed their time, talent and treasure to the effort-- it takes a village to make a seven-minute documentary in five days!

You are invited to check out the project website at:

And, the Doc Challenge site at:

There was a sneak preview of the film at the Graduation Screening at the Hollywood Theatre last week, but if you missed that, there will be a local Doc Challenge screening in the coming weeks (also at the Hollywood). There will also be an on-campus screening this Summer quarter of "Death Goes Green," as well as our other fine submission, "Into the Sea," which chronicles the history of an Oregon seaside resort that fell into the ocean last century, and a current town that is likewise threatened by coastal erosion.
