Hartwick to Screen Film ‘No Impact Man’

February 17, 2011

On Thursday, February 24, Hartwick College will host a screening of No Impact Man,a feature documentary about author and environmentalist Colin Beavan, who in 2006 began the No Impact Project and vowed to reduce his environmental impact as much as possible for one year. 

The film will be shown at 7 p.m. in Anderson Theatre in the Anderson Center for the Arts on the Hartwick College campus. The screening is free of charge and the public is invited to attend.

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 as Beavan and his family struggle with their radical lifestyle change.

This event is sponsored by Hartwick College's 2010-11 Consumption Campus Theme. For more information, contact Dan Morse, Coordinator of Sustainability Programs for the Pine Lake Institute for Environmental and Sustainability Studies, at or 431-4666.
