In His Own Words: Peter Richardson Shares a Scene from His Sundance-Winner, 'How to Die in Oregon'

13 February 2012 2:56 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Below Portland-based filmmaker Peter Richardson shares a scene from his second feature documentary, "How to Die in Oregon," winner of the Grand Jury Prize (Documentary) at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. The HBO release comes out on DVD February 14. Why I Made the Film “How to Die in Oregon” was born out of a rather serendipitous moment in 2006. I was departing Portland for Sundance with my first documentary, “Clear Cut: The Story of Philomath, Oregon” and, as I left my airport hotel room that morning I saw the USA Today that had been delivered to the door.  One of the above-the-fold headlines announced that the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, had upheld Oregon’s Death with Dignity Law -- the law had been challenged by the Bush Administration under the Controlled Substances Act. It was clear to me in that moment that this would be the topic of my next film. »
