No Impact Man: The Movie In OKC

no-impactAuthor Colin Beavan, in research for his next book, began the No Impact Project in November 2006. A newly self-proclaimed environmentalist who could no longer avoid pointing the finger at himself, Colin leaves behind his liberal complacency with a vow to make as little environmental impact as possible for one year. No more automated transportation, no more electricity, no more non-local food, no more material consumption…no problem. That is, until his espressoguzzling, retail-worshiping wife Michelle and their two-year-old daughter are dragged into the fray. Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein’s film provides a front row seat into the experiment that became a national fascination and media sensation as well as an intriguing inside look at the familial strains and strengthened bonds that result from Colin and Michelle?s struggle with their radical lifestyle change.

No Impact Man is coming to the Oklahoma Museum of Art on September 19th at 8:00 p.m. You can find other times on the official website.
