New DVD: How to Die in Oregon

March 7, 2012

We recently added How to Die in Oregon to the DBRL collection. The film played at the Ragtag this year and currently has a rating of 100% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:

In 1994, Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. As a result, any individual whom two physicians diagnose as having less than six months to live can lawfully request a fatal dose of barbiturate to end his or her life. Since 1994, more than 500 Oregonians have taken their mortality into their own hands. Filmmaker Peter Richardson gently enters the lives of the terminally ill as they consider whether, and when, to end their lives by lethal overdose.
