The NO IMPACT MAN book, No Impact Man: The Adventures of a Guilty Liberal Who Attempts to Save the Planet, and the Discoveries He Makes About Himself and Our Way of Life.
Oscilloscope Laboratories announced today that it has acquired domestic distribution rights to Laura Gabbert and Justin Schein?s documentary, NO IMPACT MAN, a look at the personal fallout resulting from one man?s decision to eliminate his family?s impact on the environment in downtown Manhattan. NO IMPACT MAN had its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and will screen at the SILVERDOCS film festival and the Los Angeles Film Festival this month. Oscilloscope will open the film in theaters on September 4th, 2009, with a DVD and digital release to follow.
Adam Yauch, head of Oscilloscope Laboratories said, ?This film really got me. It?s the first time I?ve seen an environmentally concerned film with a strong comedic element. I still think about it every time I go to the supermarket.?
