No Impact Man


DIRECTOR: Laura Gabbert, Justin Schein



GENRE: Documentary


SYNOPSIS: Author Colin Beavan, a newly self-proclaimed environmentalist who could no longer avoid pointing the finger at himself, vows to make as little environmental impact as possible for one year.  No more automated transportation, no more electricity, no more non-local food. That is, until his espresso-guzzling, retail-worshipping wife, Michelle, and their two year-old daughter are dragged into the fray.  What began as one man’s environmental experiment quickly becomes an experiment in how much one woman is willing to sacrifice for her husband’s dreams.  Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein’s film became a national fascination and a look at the marital challenges that result from Colin and Michelle’s radical lifestyle change.
