|Filmmaker / editor / codirector and editor, A WILL FOR THE WOODS|
Filmmaker Brian Wilson graduated from Brown University with a degree in Comparative Literature and History. Passionate about the natural world and its protection and restoration, he is pleased to have the chance to explore and raise awareness about green burial with his first feature, A Will for the Woods. He became interested in developing deeper insight into death after his mother passed away in 2008, and has been grateful to find it in working on this project, which he hopes will offer similar comfort to many viewers. His editing and producing work has included biographical specials and news pieces for Canal Plus and Lifetime Television, environmentally themed documentary shorts, and experimental narratives. Brian lives in Brooklyn, New York, where he planted and maintains a native mini-forest.
