“Your Environmental Road Trip,” abbreviated “YERT” will play on Thursday, September 22, at the Angelika Dallas at 8:45 pm, with introduction by North Texas environmental activist and entrepreneur, Thomas Kemper of Dolphin Blue. Tom will hold a Q&A with director Ben Evans following the film. We are truly excited to have this wonderful and innovative film at our fest alongside all the other fantastic works we have selected this year.
“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. Featuring Bill McKibben, Wes Jackson, Will Allen, Janine Benyus, Joel Salatin, David Orr, and others.”
“YERT has taken its adventure and turned it into a feature film celebrating the American spirit in the face of adversity.”–Rider Press
