HOW TO DIE IN OREGON is Portland-based filmmaker Peter Richardson's second feature documentary. He began production on the film in 2007 and is its director, producer, co-editor and cinematographer. Richardson also directed, produced, edited and co-photographed his debut feature "Clear Cut: the Story of Philomath, Oregon", which premiered at the Sundace Film Festival in 2006. The documentary centers on a rural Oregon timber town where a rift between conservatives and liberals threatens to put an end to a 40-year-old scholarship plan that pays the college tuition for every local high school graduate the town produces. The film won best documentary at the Sarasota Film Festival and was broadcast on the Sundance Channel.
