Zen & the Art of Dying the latest documentary by filmmaker Broderick Fox is an official selection of the 15th Annual Santa Fe Film Festival, which runs December 2-6, 2015. Fox will be attending the festival.

The film is a portrait of Zenith Virago, Australia’s premiere ‘deathwalker’ whose personal and professional experiences challenge our core assumptions about life and dissolve our taboos around death. Zenith's work models an international Natural Death Care Movement gaining momentum as Baby Boomers begin to retire and are demanding more personalized, empowered, and meaningful choices around end-of-life decision making, just as they did with the natural childbirth movement.

The film will screen 11 AM Sunday December 6 at The Screen: Santa Fe University of Art and Design, with a Q&A with Fox to follow. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the venue.

This selection by Santa Fe is the latest in a series of public exhibitions for the film, which premiered as the Closing Night Film of Australia’s Byron Bay International Film Festival in March and screened as part of Cinema Diverse: The Palm Springs LGBTQ Film Festival in September, where it was voted a Festival Favorite by audiences. Fox is just back from the Austin Film Festival, where the film screened twice as part of the Heart of Film Showcase, a selection of 14 films expressly chosen to showcase diverse storytelling across a range of genres and forms. The film has also been curated for screening at the Morbid Anatomy Museum in New York in January.
