Zenith Virago Returns to Austin, Texas for Deathwalker Trainings

Based on the popular response to the 2015 Austin Film Festival screenings of Zen & the Art of Dying, Zenith Virago was recently invited back to Texas to re-screen the film and conduct a 3-day deathwalker training and funeral master class at the Dharma Ranch Retreat Center in San Marcos, Texas. Thanks to Dharma Ranch owners Susan Fitz-Simon and Kelli Cotner for being such great hosts. It’s exciting to see the natural death care work that Zenith and the community of Byron Shire, Australia model resonate with other communities across the globe! Let’s all #DoDeathDifferently

Thanks to everyone who came out to our screening at the Morbid Anatomy Museum on Thursday January 14th. Fantastic to have our New York premiere with a sold-out crowd in such an interesting and engaging cultural space. So great that Brooklyn funeral director Amy Cunningham of Fitting Tribute Funeral Services and Ralph White of New York Open Center were in attendance in order for us to be able to connect local audiences with how they can engage Natural Death Care in New York City! Whether you’re living  in the country or a major city, we can all #DoDeathDifferently.

Byron Bay international Film Festival Laurel

Zen & the Art of Dying will have its world premiere on March 14, 2015 as the closing night gala film at the 2015 Byron Bay International Film Festival, a special evening that will bring together and honor the very community the film celebrates. Filmmaker Broderick Fox met Zenith Virago, the central subject of the film, in 2012 at the Byron world premiere of his last film The Skin I’m In, so this will be a real homecoming, indeed. Fox and executive producer Lee Biolos will travel from Los Angeles to attend the festival. Tickets on sale at via the Byron Community Centre.
