There is also HBO's upcoming Oscar-nominated documentary called THE LAST CAMPAIGN OF GOVERNOR BOOTH GARDNER, premiering this Wednesday, October 27th on HBO2.

In 1994, a year after serving two terms as one of the most popular governors in modern Washington State history, Booth Gardner was diagnosed with Parkinson s disease. In 2008, as his health continued to deteriorate, he returned to the political spotlight, this time as the driving force behind a ballot initiative that would legalize one s choice to die. This intimate, thought-provoking documentary visits the former governor at his home near Tacoma and follows him around the state during the campaign.
