June 1, 2019 - No Impact Man, Oscilloscope Pictures, 2008.
Follow the Manhattan-based Beavan family as they abandon their high consumption 5th Avenue lifestyle and try to live a year while making no net environmental impact.

June 22, 2019 - Minimalism: A documentary about the important things, The Video Project, 2016.
How might your life be better with less? This documentary examines the many flavors of minimalism by taking the audience inside the lives of minimalists from all walks of life—families, entrepreneurs, architects, artists, journalists, scientists, and even a former Wall Street broker—all of whom are striving to live a meaningful life with less.

July 13, 2019 - Ingredients: The local food movement takes root, Optic Nerve Productions, 2009.
Ingredients takes a positive look at the good food system. It raises a lot of points about sustainable food and sustainable production that demonstrate the importance of the local food movement. If you are looking to “buy local,” the film will definitely help you think about local possibilities.
