How to Die in Oregon (Trailer)

"How to Die in Oregon" focuses on a difficult topic, but is a documentary well worth watching. At Visual Aid, we're a little bias as we were co-editors on this project, but Rotten Tomatoes has it ranked at 90 percent and it won the Grand Jury Prize in the US Documentary Competition in 2011. "How to Die in Oregon" currently available via HBO.

This film was shot and directed by Peter Richardson. James Allen at Visual Aid Inc. helped to assemble and edit the film.
