This 2009(93 min.) film follows the bold environmental project that Colin Beavan began to attempt to expunge his carbon footprint by giving up material consumption, electricity, non-local foods and basically all worldly pleasures in Manhattan for one full year – an inside look at the way this extreme idea effects Colin and his family. Directed by Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein. Refreshments and an informal discussion will follow the screening. Open to all University students, faculty, and staff.
