Peter D. Richardson’s new feature documentary, “How to Die in Oregon”, will premiere in competition at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and will have its broadcast premiere on HBO in 2011.

In 1994 Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. How to Die in Oregon gently enters the lives of terminally ill Oregonians to illuminate the power of death with dignity.

“How to Die in Oregon” tells the stories of terminally ill Oregonians, their families, doctors, and friends as they decide whether and when to end their life under the state’s Death with Dignity Law. What emerges is a complex, poignant, and deeply moving portrait of what it means to die at the time and circumstance of one’s choosing.

Richardson’s previous documentary, “Clear Cut: The Story of Philomath, Oregon,” was an official selection at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and was broadcast on the Sundance Channel.
