The Juneau Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will present "No Impact Man," a full-length documentary about one man's effort to live for a year with no net environmental impact, at 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 3, at the Goldtown Nickelodeon Theater. This film is the second in the JUUF's "Conscientious Projector" series, which seeks to address issues of concern or interest in the community through film.
After the film, representatives from JUUF and two co-sponsoring groups, the Juneau Commission on Sustainability and the Juneau Chapter of Slow Food - Alaska, will lead a discussion on living simply and sustainably in Juneau.
"While No Impact Man takes place in Manhattan, far from Juneau, many of the issues raised are the same: What difference can one person make? How far can one go before others become uncomfortable? What does sustainability mean?" said Jetta Whittaker, one of the volunteers involved with JUUF's Conscientious Projector series.
The film is free to the public, though donations will be accepted and put toward offering Conscientious Projector films on other topics in future months. Light refreshments and information on the co-sponsoring groups will be available during the event.
