This is the second of the two featured films in the Westport Village Environmental Series this fall, and again, we hope to inform our community about the importance of environmental responsibility in a fun and memorable way.
The Road Trip-YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip) is a year-long eco-expedition through all 50 United States. With video camera in hand and tongue in cheek, we explore the landscape of America's unique approach to environmental sustainability. We believe that Americans want to do the right thing - they just don't want to look strange doing it, and they don't have the time or the means to explore all the options. That's where the YERT team comes in. Follow our adventures as we shamelessly bathe ourselves in the best (and weirdest) of America's ecological progress with a mix of outrageous antics, provocative examples, and thoughtful reporting.
The Film- YERT (Your Environmental Road Trip): 50 States. 1 Year. Zero Garbage? Called to action by a planet in peril, three friends hit the road - traveling with hope, humor, and all of their garbage - to explore every state in America (the good, the bad...and the weird) in search of the extraordinary innovators and 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 pushes them to the brink in this award-winning docu-comedy.
Produced and directed by Ben Evans and Mark Dixon.
The Louisville connection includes Ben Evans, co-producer/director, and Julie Dingman Evans, part of the production crew. Ben will be attending the screening and will participate in the film discussion.
