3 friends. 50 States. One wild year! Called to action by a planet in peril, three friends hit the road - traveling America with hope, humor...and all of their garbage for the year - to explore the good, the bad, and the weird across every state in search of the extraordinary innovators and courageous citizens who are tackling humanity's greatest environmental crises. As the YERT team layers outlandish eco-challenges onto their year-long quest, an unexpected turn of events throws the project for a loop in this award-winning docu-comedy. Featuring Bill McKibben, Wes Jackson, Will Allen, Janine Benyus, Joel Salatin, David Orr, and music by Ben Sollee, Mark Geary and more.
There will be Q&A session with director Ben Evans following the screening.
