“Hundreds of my readers have told me that my novel Ishmael should be read in every high school classroom in the world. Naturally I’d be delighted to see this happen, but I really think it would be more to the point to have What a Way to Go: Life at the End of Empire seen in every high school classroom in the world! The two hours of this documentary are two hours that bring hope for the future of humanity by awakening and informing in the most profound yet lucid way imaginable.”

Daniel Quinn, author of Ishmael

 

 

A Message from the Film Makers (2011):

Contrary to popular lore, independent filmmakers are rarely affluent. Most, in fact, go into deep debt making a film and only occasionally get back out of debt. We made What A Way To Go through local fundraising, investing our own capital, and thousands of hours of sweat equity. We are not in debt and feel very grateful.

We’ve decided to release the movie for free Internet viewing with the intention of being of service. However, we have never made even minimum wage for the thousands of hours we put into the making of the movie.

If you value what you see here, please show your appreciation by purchasing a DVD or Bonus footage discs, downloading the movie through Filmbaby, or making a donation.
