Zen & the Art of Dying Receives Warm Reception at Austin Film Festival

We’ve just returned from the 2015 Austin Film Festival, where Zen & the Art of Dying received warm response at our two festival screenings as an Official Selection of the 2015¬†Heart of Film Program. Director¬†Broderick Fox, Executive Producer Lee Biolos, and the film’s central subject Zenith Virago (who flew in from Australia!) conducted Q&A’s after both screenings. Also in attendance a the fest was the film’s Associate Producer Michele Bornheim. It was heartening to see how the film translated to mainstream American audiences, and Virago was able to connect with a range of Natural Death Care workers in the Austin Area. Next stop, the Santa Fe Film Festival in December!

One thought on “Zen & the Art of Dying Receives Warm Reception at Austin Film Festival

  1. Mazel Tov to all concerned in the creation of Zen & The Art of Dying. This film will become part of the canon of films, and other materials, which will assist people to plan a ‘good death’ for themselves without the ‘intervention’ of the for- profit Funeral Industry. Thank you Broderick Fox, Lee Biolos, Zenith Virago and Michele Bornheim – you are helping to bring forth the Good Death Revolution!
